This route begins up slightly overhanging rock to a big roof at the second bolt. This roof is surmounted using some interesting movement using a bad gaston in the roof and a bad pinch just above the lip before gaining the glory jugs just past the lip of the roof. After the roof the route turns into an almost featureless vertical shield of rock. Levitate through this section to the fourth bolt with a leaver biner which acts as the anchors for the route. Supposedly there is an extension above this that is still a project, but I didn't see any additional bolts so I wonder if it has been removed.


Fifth route from the left or 4th route from the right.


4 bolts, the last of which has a leaver biner on it and acts as the anchor.

Once you brush the holds and figure out the sequence below the last bolt, it climbs well and is probably around 12a, maybe a touch harder, but the route is so short that you carry no pump for the techy crux sequence. Sep 18, 2016

The book has this route listed as 5.12a which is why I put it as that, but either holds have broken or I just did it the wrong way, but it felt much harder than that to me. Up to the third bolt I'd have probably given it a 5.12b, but the section from the third bolt to the fourth bolt would put it probably at 5.12d IMO. Aug 2, 2016
