Description

Long climbing up wall just left of big corner. Keep on truckin' with crux pulling up overlap about halfway up. Still potentially a bit loose, use caution. Take the shot!

Location

The first route to the left of the huge chimney/cleft in the middle of the main wall.

Protection

10 bolts to anchors

First bolt placement is iffy, I'd skip it.

Sticking to the bolt line felt considerably harder than 5.8 around the 3rd/4th bolt. Some people went a bit left of the line and said it felt easier. Mar 30, 2015
Following the bolt line felt much harder than other 5.8's like Super Arete. Jun 10, 2015

I agree with the above commenters. There are two sections on this route that climb harder than 5.8.

The more challenging sections are at bolt 3/4 and a little higher where you have to pull an obvious bulge using a huge flake. Around bolt 9/10 pay attention for the anchors which are to climber's right of the bolt line.

This route is one of the more challenging 5.8 sport climbs I've experienced in NM. Oct 5, 2015

This route feels way harder than 5.8. My 11 year old was leading it and had to back down off the bolt above the bulge (number 7, I think). She couldn't clip it from the good feet and jugs, so beware if you're a shorter new leader. She redpointed 2 5.11s on this trip and felt this was at least 5.9. Aug 29, 2018
