Description

Start 15' left of Virgin Thing by climbing a large tree for 12-15', plug some gear and climb into a large hueco. Exit the hueco left and follow holds up and slightly trend right to a stance. From stance, follow line of least resistance and gear as you will eventually finds holds but dwindling pro. From here you'll need a blue slider or possibly fiddle small brass, while running it out (5.9) till the slab meets steeper, colorful rock. From here get great pro and follow good jugs with the occasional horizontal cam until you find yourself under the large capped roof. From here, get pro and traverse right out roof and pull over on top the cliff, slinging a tree for an anchor. This route is not entirely straight forward, and will challenge the aspiring 5.10 leader. It is an amazing route, minus the tree shucking one must do to gain the route and is not to be missed for anyone who is searching for moderate, off the beaten path routes. Plus, you won't have to wait in line for the other neighboring classics.

Location

Start 15' left of Virgin Thing. A full 70m rope will get you down.

Protection

Small to medium stoppers, cams up to 1", with a focus on smaller cams, offsets being very useful, if not necessary in two places. Again, tote a blue slider along if you don't feel comfortable running out 5.8-5.9 and a healthy selection of 2' slings.
