Description [Suggest Change]

A technical and beta-intensive boulder problem constitutes the first 3 bolts. I think it warrants V5. Don't be surprised if at first you feel like there aren't enough holds or feet- its cryptic down low. Above the third bolt you can enjoy mostly sinker pockets and generally good holds- its probably only 11a/b to the chains. This route is an easy tick at the grade- suss out the lower 9 move boulder problem and even someone with poor fitness could hang on to the finish. The climbing is enjoyable, but the rock is less than perfect.

Location [Suggest Change]

You will find this route just to the right of Your Onus. It can be easily identified by spoting the "strangle hold" above the second bolt- a right-facing block with lots of brown glue visible on its right side.

Protection [Suggest Change]

All bolts to a chain anchor.

Rock quality on this one is pretty good (by AF standards). Everything you need is solid, just watch out if you get a bit sloppy on the footwork. Like most routes here, with enough traffic, it will be super clean. As of 8/16, looks like someone has a project going for the extension. Looks sick! Aug 9, 2016
