Description [Edit]

Start up a steep, huecoed wall, then follow bolts on a rising traverse to the right. Use an undercling to stand up on the rotten band. Clip the last bolt and hope you are tall enough to reach the exit holds. This makes for a nice warm-up for the other routes here. It may only feel 5.10 if you are tall enough for the top crux.

Huge thanks to the Flatirons Climbing Council and OSMP for making new routes in the Flatirons possible.

Location [Edit]

This is left of Skin Flute.

Protection [Edit]

Nice job, Mark and Paul! Climbed this yesterday and thought it was excellent, with interesting moves, a bit of pump management, and a wildly exposed lieback finish (crux) at the top. Shorter folks might have trouble reaching the right hold that starts the final lieback. This will likely see plenty of activity due to being the easiest thing up there. Mar 23, 2016

This is the third bolted route (counting from the right side as you hike up the approach trail) on the south face. The first two routes slant to the left, but this route slants to the right. A large hold came off somewhere around the third bolt yesterday, but I don't think it was needed. Jan 15, 2018
