This is a fun new route, sandwiched between House of Pain (5.11a) and Redhorn Gate (5.8). It shares the House of Pain anchors. Its fairly sustained on the upper half, which might make the 5.10c rating feel harder if you don't have a lot of endurance.
Start under the roof on the right side below the first bolt. Uses a combination of underclings, a couple jugs, and a strenuous and crimpy crux. Follow the bolt line straight up. If you try to venture too far left or right, you will end up getting into awkward moves that will make the route harder.


Just right of House of Pain.

Climbed twice. Went up the face following the bolt line and climbed through the runout. Later in the day I thought I'd switch over to the arete which made for much harder climbing which was every bit of 10d. So pumpy! Sep 12, 2016

I found the crux down low moving on after clipping the 2nd bolt. Committing reachy moves to a fairly good edge and then a stretchy throw to the left horn, 10d for me. Up higher the route climbs through 10b/c terrain including a crimpy throw to a honkin good ledge. Super fun! Mar 30, 2015
