Description [Suggest Change]
In the center of Sycamore wall there is a steep/overhung section. On the left side of that you will see a bolt about 15 feet up - this is the beginning of the route. Start below, slightly right of bolt then above bolt work left on horizontal slightly the straight up to reachy move then onto dirty ledge committing but good pro 5.10a. On ledge look for bolt slightly left, clip then continue essentially straight up from there for about 100 more feet on easier climbing 5.7 to top - aim for the tallest part of the wall. Pro when you need it, good rock. A single bolt marks the top of the route.

triples from micro cams to 0.75, double #1BD, single #2, nuts and 6 extendable runners and 6 draws to minimize rope drag. Descent by walking left slightly at top and look for 2 bolt anchor on boulder on top of route "Machete" for singe rap with a 70m.
