Another great line on this relatively small spire. The first ascent party could not remember whether they finished the route (which they had) or what they called it. Rediscovered and appropriately renamed by Tony and Cheyenne. Begin stemming at the entrance of the gap that leads to Tagua. Look for bolt at about 25' height. Bouldery crux comes shortly after that on bomber gear. Take cruiser, right-facing, layback flake to ledge. Finish on 'Another 5.7' by stepping out right onto headwall clipping a 1/4" buttonhead. Place micro gear for the exciting finish.


SE side of Tusk. Starts on top of large boulder at corridor entrance. 40m rappel.
