Description

Scramble to the first bolt and then work your way up and right on the diagonal feature to the second bolt.

Thin, technical slab climbing will see you through the crux and up to a welcome rest just past the third bolt.

Cruise up past three more bolts, and then work your way through another tricky section right and up, past the seventh bolt.

Climb past two additional bolts and join Blue Steel at its tenth bolt. Follow that line on the fun upper slab to the anchor.

Location

Between Magnum and Blue Steel, look for the line of bolts starting off the ledge. Either traverse the ledge from the start of Blue Steel, or climb up from directly below on easy terrain.

Lower off with a 70m rope, but be careful of the end. Swing right as you lower so you don't run out of rope!

Protection

14 Bolts (Last 5 shared with Blue Steel), Mussy Hook Anchor.

Did blue steel and the swung over to top rope this route. Really good stuff! Got a few clean goes at the lower crux and then ran it to the anchors. Up top is engaging too. Will be back to lead it. Oct 11, 2015

Getting to the bolt after committing to the crux keeps your attention. Fun upper crux but easier. Well done! Aug 3, 2015

If you're a technical slab master, this route may feel easier than 11a. If you're used to steep jug hauls, it may feel harder. FWIW, I find the moves more difficult than the crux on Gasoline Fight. YMMV. Apr 30, 2015
