Start to the left of Ignominious Demise. Follows a left leaning bolt line that straightens after the third bolt. Difficult traversing and bouldery sequences abound in the lower portion of the route; heady slab awaits above.


8 bolts to anchors.

The Ruckman guide does not give this route an R, but it should. There's a very long runout to a difficult clip on the upper headwall (just above the roof)--if you're on the short side, it is dangerous. Having some small cams for the middle roof will alleviate the R rating.

I would add that this route is just past the large roof. An additional cam (or two) is highly recommended. I placed a BD #0.4 and a Metolius #2 in the slight overhanging blocky section before the slab. Long slings (or better yet, runners) would have reduced the rope drag for slab climbing above. Tricky crux sequence took me a few burns to get worked out. Aug 4, 2014

I'd strongly recommend a few cams for the middle roof. Otherwise, the upper clip is completely terrifying, and especially so if you're shorter. Jul 27, 2014
