This route is the 2nd pitch above The Iliad. The rock, movement and position above the entire valley make this one of the must do .12s in the Bat Cave area. Probably as good as New Beginning but not quite so hard.
1st PITCH (70') -
Climb The Iliad or Little Iliad to the belay chains.
2nd PITCH (110') -
From the upper belay on The Iliad(at 110')move up to clip a bolt then step a bit right and back left to the next bolt. Move right into the corner after the 2nd bolt as the route begins to steepen. Climb the fun 5.11 corner on good holds that begin to get smaller. At the 5th bolt make a difficult move left out of the corner to a small bulge. Surmount this difficult bulge on extremely small crimps. Make techy moves back right to a pod in the corner. Climb over the final bulge and move left to the chains at a belay stance/ledge.
Note: The large block at the top that you climb onto is solid but the right side has a crack in it. At present the fractured right side is solid but try not to use it as is could come off in time. Better to climb left on jugs under the block and then pull up onto the solid center section of the block.


Climbs the steep corner up and right of the finish to The Iliad/Trojan Horse pitch. Start at the base of The Trojan Wall and climb either The Iliad(5.10+) or Trojan Horse(5.11+) to access the upper wall


9 bolts above the upper Iliad belay anchors lead to a 2 bolt belay station with chains and lowering binders.
