DescriptionA long, very enjoyable route with a number of challenging moves, capped with a thin, flummoxing section right before the chains.
Head up the through the first four bolts and branch left. A few steeper bits interspersed with occasional mini-ledges for feet keep your heart going. A bit past halfway a slightly less steep section briefly intervenes.
The line then gets gradually thinner until right near the top you're left wondering how you're going to possibly finish this thing before the pump overtakes you and you peel.
LocationThe first line of bolts to the right of the large ledge that is approached via any of several easier routes (and one stiff .11a). The Illustrious One branches left after the fourth bolt.
Shares first 4 bolts with Phosphoresence.
