Until the FFA it was popular to do this route as a two-pitch 5.10d and then rap.

Pitch 1 - climb past two bolts(5.9) and belay.

Pitch 2 - climb past five bolts(5.10d) on sloping, ledgey features to the belay.

Pitch 3 - climb past four bolts(5.12a) and belay at a shared anchor with Fort Knox.

You can rappel from here of climb several 5.7 crack pitches to the top.


This route starts below the right edge of the Boa Roof from the top of a large flake.


Not much gear, if any, is needed for the first three pitches. A wide selection including a 3.5" piece is necessary for the 5.7 cracks.
