An eye catching line with intricate moves, perfect rock, and multiple cruxes that get progressively harder. Besides a few roof sections, this route is not terribly steep. However, it is extremely pumpy.

Start up a corner on poor sidepulls to a tricky move over a roof to a jug. Move right on angular holds, and make a tough undercling move over the huge roof to a massive jug. Hop to the horizontal crack and take a break before tackling the next boulder problem.

Power past flat sidepulls and crimps to a slightly worse rest at set of large edges. Pinch the large, glassy sidepulls, build your feet, and go big for a decent edge. Try to get a little back, then fight past a final section of half-pad sidepulls and polished foot smears to the anchors.

Felt more like 13a, but the online guide suggests 12d.

Do you have what it takes to be the Bovenator?


To the right of Condor.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor. Use a 60 meter rope.
