Description Suggest change

No, I didn't spell it wrong ;)

A highly featured route that always stood out to me as a natural line. Just took me the better part of a decade to get around to cleaning and equipping it.

Two very different cruxes, one soon after you leave the ground and one midway up the climb guard an easier and quite pleasant finish to the anchors. Zig a little and zag a little to find the path of least resistance and use creativity to find your solution to the puzzles along the way as there are multiple ways to do them.

Notes:
-Having a hard time grading this one so please chime in. I'm not a fan of slash grades but I really can't decide yet.
-there are a couple hollow flakes to the left of the undercling at the start but you don't need them and I fear that taking them off could destabilize othe features. Just leave em be.
-a few crumbly foots are left down low but that should go away with some traffic, rest assured the rest of the route is on nice and interesting rock.

Location Suggest change

Currently the farthest bolted route to the left at Yellowknife next to the summit cliff gully.

Protection Suggest change

5 glue in wave bolts to pigtail anchors.
