Description

P1. 5.13a. 9 Bolts, 2 Bolt Anchor. Special Forces starts on top of large blocks that have a small cave under them. The first bolt is located 8' high. Climb up sloping holds on a extremely difficult, overhanging face trending right on the well sewed up bolt line. Pull through a notch to gain a ledge then move straight up to gain the first anchor 55' up the wall.

P2. 5.10c. 10 Bolts, 2 Bolt Anchor. Climb up the ramp left of the first anchor. Follow bolts under the roof to reach the second belay.

P3. 5.12a. Climb right from the anchor into a corner chimney and follow this up some run out bolts where gear can be used. This feature will lead to a final anchor shared with Dreams Never End.

Location

This route is located 56' left of the pullup bar and is the left most route in the main amphitheater. Start on large blocks above a small cave.
