Description

The climb starts relatively easy with some somewhat delicate traversing back and forth up the face. Nothing spectacular, but still pretty fun. Right when the climb gets a little steeper, the first crux comes with a big throw between two good holds. It isn't too bad if you remember to try hard. From there, work your way up a bit further to the last bolt. Here is where the real fun starts. Hopefully you aren't too pumped. Power through the awesome V5ish boulder problem with a side pull, some nice crimps, a gaston, and a sloper to a pretty exciting finish. Once you stick the jug after the sloper, you've made it!

Location

Two routes to the right of the Odyssey. There is a sort of cool looking rock formed chair at the base.

Protection

Some draws. I think around 10. You don't really need to stick clip it unless you really want to.

BETA ALERT! DON'T BLOW YOUR ONSIGHT!!!

This is a good route with decent rock quality and fun movement. If you are a grade chaser, this is one of the softer 12c's in the Obed. There is a dynamic move in the steeper mid-section, and a very brief boulder problem guarding the chains. You get a bit of a rest before the boulder, which makes it all about getting the sequence right, as pump isn't a huge issue. Enjoy! Sep 11, 2018
