Description

A long and very pumpy route with a vertical start, a steep headwall and a topout crux.

Meander past bright yellow patches of lichen to a no hands rest on a ledge about 25 feet up. Work up the flake, and cast into a long section of perfect pockets and edges with the occasional shake. Save some energy for the unique lip encounter at the very top!

To avoid rope drag you may want to down climb from the chains and lower off the last draw.

Gets lots of morning sun.

Location

Left of Golden Snow Cone.

Protection

Bolts to a two bolt anchor. 60 meter rope will get you down.

I thought the ending was great. Do we really need another Red River Gorge crimp ladder? Nov 6, 2017

Fantastic route with a fantastically stupid ending. The rope grooves are enough reason to put the anchor before the rollover. Nov 5, 2017
