Description

This is another excellent addition to the Devil's Den scene, especially if you like crimpy, technical and tenuous highballs.

Start standing beneath the tall face with both hands matched on an obvious incut flake at 5 feet. Use a few small crimps to the gain the right facing feature above. Then use good footwork and lots of body tension to reach decent holds in the higher right facing feature (crux). A few more moves lead to the top and a fairly easy finish.

This is a 3 star line for aesthetics, but the rock is still a little flakey. This should clean up with more traffic, so hopefully people will get on it. A big thanks goes out to all the people that put effort into cleaning this line over the last year or so! Those efforts helped make this line a reality.

Location

This climb is on the Dust Boulder, on the opposite side from 'Ashes To Ashes'. It climbs the the left side of the obvious tall face.

Protection

A handful of pads and a spotter or two are ideal. The landing is fairly flat, but the problem is tall with potential for awkward falls.
