Description Suggest change

Easily the best route at OH8, and probably the most consistently difficult at the crag. This long, exciting route has a little of everything. Three crux sections will quickly make themselves obvious when climbing this route for the first time:

The moves off the deck through the first slab section and up to the second bolt are very thin, technical and crimpy. Climbing only the face here earns the grade, though climbing left for a safe first clip and gear placement won't spoil the route.

The second crux hits about half way up with a specific sequence of larger moves to attain a ledge.

The sequence for pulling the final roof constitutes the final crux, mostly for the larger moves and pump factor...but it's also the best part!

Location Suggest change

15 feet right of Tidewater/Wind Dummy. The tallest climb in the vicinity. Look for a big, undulating red/orange face with a wide horizontal black stripe about 3/4 of the way up the route.

Protection Suggest change

Quickdraws, 1.5-2" cam, some small pieces for easier corner start. Re-thread and lower-off anchors.
