Microgear and memorable exposure characterize this fine trad line. It starts about 15 feet right and downhill from Vector Madness by climbing a discontinuous seam up into and out the top of a short corner and toward an obvious, gently overhanging Lost Arrow crack. From the top of the LA crack climb a left-facing corner until possible to step right to easy ground. From here continue up for about 15 feet and step left onto a nice red face leading to the top. Tricky gear placements are required to protect the starting seam and KB crack, but patience and craft make it suitably safe.


Right of Vector Madness -- see photodiagram on the main page for the wall. One rap (or lower) with a 70 meter rope from chains, otherwise catch another rap at the belay atop Vector Madness.


Trad rack up to 2 to 2.5 inch cams, including microcams and brass/steel nuts (offsets useful).


Wow this is fun! The line kinda jumps out at you and typical BCC gear is all there. Be sure to bring loads of long slings for the easier, upper section above the crux. Once the line takes you left and 10' above the anchors for VM/VC, its worth going up to the upper anchors out right, just for the views of Steorts and High Dive. Maybe bring a couple feet of chain to replace the webbing at that anchor. (Its in good condition but will equalize it for the long term.) Aug 2, 2015
