Please avoid touching or disturbing the large boulder next to the wall. It is chained off and has native petroglyphs on it.
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.
Farthest right route on White Imperialist wall, just right of large deep cave. Lower off onto trailside climbs (Real Good Time)
