DescriptionThis is one of the fondest lines that I have ever been involved with establishing. It has so many of the qualities that make climbing special to me. While sport routes are great, the nature of climbing descends from mind/body/spirit/adventure and this route embodies that mind set. It's completely natural, extremely tall, has impeccable quality, majestic movement and is plenty bold. The runouts are bigger than its neighbor and the falls a little more hazardous but without the distinct crux power necessary for climbing Plastic Cat.
This is an endurance route with no particularly difficult moves. The first half is delicate easier climbing with sketchy gear and a ride you don't wanna take. While the second half is very steep with gear nests followed by one crux sequence after another through continuing overhangs.
Start the same as Plastic Cat, following it's initial traverse left into the center of the wall. Instead of climbing up the obvious Plastic Cat seam, keep traversing left and up towards a roof with a crack under it. Pull the roof and continue climbing straight up the wall through seemingly endless overhangs to the top. Don't traverse left towards the crack system on the far left side of the wall or your getting off route as the line actually stays on the Plastic Cat wall.
