Description

The sport routes in the lower gorge can be thoughtful, delicate and powerful! This route is a culmination of the 5.12 routes and is nothing short of fantastic. It's bad-ass with the crux above the fourth bolt - stick the move or re-suss your beta.

glad to see this is getting a lot of sends this summer! I doubt it had been sent in 4-5 years before Wally brushed the cobwebs off. Jul 24, 2015

John Rich and I added chains to it in the fall of 2014. When I cut off the webbing and brought it down JR said it was the same webbing he had put on the anchor when he bolted it in the late 80s! Jul 28, 2015

This is the best bolted route I've done in the Gorge to date. It's also pretty darn friendly for Smith Rock 12c. (though you do have to punch it through the crux...) Apr 14, 2017
