Description

Probably the steepest 12a in Grassi, if not all of the Bow Valley. Start on blocky moves from the top of rock at the far right of White Imperialist Wall. Move up and right to a strange almost slabby 5 ft section where any number of body smears can give you an OK rest. Then make huge moves up pocketed roof to desperation turning the lip (go deep in the pockets). Amazing and very satisfying.

Location

Farthest right route on White Imperialist wall, just right of large deep cave. Lower off onto trailside climbs (Real Good Time)

Protection

9 draws (usually there are draws hanging on the route, but most have not been changed in 10+ years). Anchors

Indeed the draws are new plastic sheathed petzl draws - An excellent improvement fro the 15 year old ones that were there. It seems like there may be one or two more draws now, and the last one before the top is certainly not needed (it is not one of the new type) - just a little extra rope drag. Aug 31, 2015

Looks like the draws were recently replaced. Aug 24, 2015
