Description

This is the farthest left (when you head down the fixed line) and the hardest at Low Wire. It is often equipped for your burly pleasure starting with bolt three. The guidebook gave it 4 stars, so I did the same.

Location

Head down the fixed line to the nice staging area. It's behind you, set back in the overhang. This is easily recognizable by the chalk that still remains after Kevin got the FA in 2013.

Protection

6 bolts.

This is a really awesome line. It felt pretty much impossible going right the way everyone else did (incredibly scrunchy for a tall guy), so I came up with some alternate, contortionist style beta. This route might be better described as a V8, so if you're low on endurance and high on power, get down there and give this route a shot! Mar 26, 2017

What a sick line! I love the burliness involved to pull the lip.... Monty, you are correct, this is a formidable sparring partner. Kevin, you kick ass for putting up the line and hooking all of us with the luxury of nice new permadraws. Thanks, brotha!

FYI, I build a small belay landing directly below the route that makes for a much less dramatic belay stance... no more falling down the gully.

The old, nasty fixed draws have now been replaced with new, steel Climb Tech permadraws. Enjoy! May 3, 2016

This route is a great exercise in burliness and a fine sparring partner! Sep 17, 2015
