Description

15 yards left of the 3rd class walk up, a large cave is located 20 feet off of the ground. This exciting line ascends the rounded, overhanging arete on the left side of the cave. Maneuver over the starting bulge using the pancake flakes and then head up and right into the mouth of the cave. Enjoy the surprisingly moderate arete until being forced out onto the face for the powerful finishing moves.

Very inspiring route! Definitely a favorite. Watch yourself transitioning from the cave onto the upper crux. There is a possibility of hitting the ledge of the cave. Big pumpy finishing moves with a clean fall. Aug 30, 2018

RE: Hayden Edwards, I took the fall going into the crux many times and it is quite safe with a good belay. Blowing the fifth bolt could be hazardous but is very unlikely due to the massive clipping jug. Oct 11, 2018

FYI the bolt at the crux is 1/2” x 6”. I figured it might see a few falls. Oct 11, 2018

Dang dude, good call. I know I've personally seen 20+ whips on it from myself and various partners. Oct 13, 2018
