Be ready to fire off your entire round to send this short left-leaning, bolted seam. Although the rock is chossy, the movement and aesthetics of the line make this a worthwhile venture if you're in the area.

5.11 climbing on some suspect rock will take you to the sobering crux right above the third bolt. Navigate your way around the thin bouldery crux and then continue fighting up the crack using a combination of insecure laybacking and face moves.

Should this thing go to the top of the cliff. Hmm... maybe we should find out.


This route is located just left of Fearful Symmetry and few routes right of Fatback/Mechanical Bull.
