Description

Route Shares first bolt with Karp Tool, or start on the slab below the small cave. Erik recommends avoiding rope drag, or put a long runner on the first several bolts.
The route traverses left just under the small cave or starts just below on the slab. A series of long reaching moves will bring you to the crux at the last bolt, which includes a challenging layback using small holds above the small roof.
This route is a little more run out than it's neighbor Karp Tool, making it a thrilling climb, on rock similar to it's neighbor.

Location

15 ft. Left of Karp Tool. Shares first bolt with Karp Tool.

Protection

6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. Bring a few runners to avoid rope drag.
