This was the original route to be bolted on the wall when its potential was first discovered by Justin Putnam. It has seen multiple attempts by many hard men over the years. Bryan Gilmore was one of the first to put some time into it, and then abandoned it, and bolted the variation that traverses left before the crux to an independent anchor (The Fearless Animal). After Putnam bolted the route, he suspected that it might be Ouray's first 5.14, and it may very well be, only repeat ascents will tell.


This angry little route starts with the first four bolts of The Fearless Animal and goes straight up into a vicious, V9ish boulder problem. Two more difficult clips lead to black chain anchors.


6 bolts.
