Description

Located on the West Face of the Monolith this out of the way route is, as I know it, the hardest routes to be established in a ground up style. The bottom two bolts hold the hardest moves of the route with your feet barley off the ground followed by continuous 5.11 climbing with a 12c crux towards the top.

Location

Just left of Penguin Handshake

Protection

Eight bolts to two bolt anchor w/ chains

Rumors are rumors, but a rumor is that a hold has broken at the bottom crux sometime after the FA. After investing some time trying to find a sequence I could see some possibility in climbing the route but I don't feel like it would still be climbed at 5.12d. Has anyone out there done this line recently? Apr 27, 2015
