Description

This route shares the first 2 bolts with Temple of Doom. After that it breaks left and follows several dihedrals up a long and VERY pumpy pitch. No hard moves on this route, but the pump gradually builds up from the moment you leave the ground and culminates in the last few moves to the anchor where you suddenly loose the bomber feet and have to smear your way up while laybacking and underclinging some rounded flakes. One of the most fun routes at the crag!

Location

Same start as Temple of Doom

Protection

11 bolts. Optional yellow alien. 60 m rope

A 60m was fine for lowering off. Felt easier than a lot of 5.11+ sport climbs in the Valley. I'd put it at maybe 5.11c Oct 15, 2015

Thanks, Bryan! I just looked at the ST topropes guide and it says 11a (-: Total BS, of course, but 11c sounds about right! Oct 15, 2015

Great climb, combination of different styles with final pump fight at the top.
Be careful before you clip first bolt. Beginning shared with "Temple of dome" feels like crux of the route. Jun 4, 2017
