The line and location of the bolts allows for two variations. The quality line stays left of the bolts on the arĂȘte. This version is the 5.13, three star variation, but it is also possible to duck right to a chossy jug and cop a rest on the big ledge. This probably drops the grade to 12.d and deminishes the quality as it disrupts the flow.


This is the overhanging arĂȘte, just right of Bitch Slapped, on the far right side of Cathedral. You have to scramble up the slab to reach the start of the route.


Five bolts lead to a bolted anchor.


Tom Wezwick and I worked on this line some years ago. I am relatively sure we placed the anchor as well. It is good that you finished the route and contributed to the Pecos. Nov 10, 2015
The anchor was there but I added the bolts. I am under the impression it was an anbandoned project of the original developers. I don't feel particularly confident at assigning ratings so it may be different than the 5.13 rating I gave it. If you climb it feel free to throw in your two cents. Also, I'd love to hear the backstory on the anchors that were there. Nov 4, 2015
