Follow a slopey rounded dike up and left for a few bolts. Continue straight up on thin reachy crimps and crystals past a couple more bolts to the anchors.


Starts about 20 feet left of Pelican's Dyke.


5 bolts plus chain anchors

Did some crystals break off? I thought the upper section was extremely reachy and difficult for 5.11. IMO probably 5.11d or 5.12a for anyone under 6 feet tall. Jul 24, 2014

I have not climbed this one but heard from others that the top is quite difficult. Maybe next time out there I'll have to give it a try! Jul 24, 2014

I could totally see a couple of critical holds disappearing near the top of this route as they seemed to stick out a bit too far. Being of 6"2" stature the moves have always seemed reachy for me. Jul 25, 2014

The bottom of this route is awesome. Some sharp hard moves up top that aren't as awesome. Jun 15, 2015

Too bad this one isn't taller.. sharp and short lived crux, but fun moves nonetheless. I am 5'8" and would not consider this 11d or 12a Apr 3, 2016
