The gear is a little wonky on this. Nuts work well. The middle section moving into the steepness is not great but the last 20 feet makes up for it. The moves after the pin are fun, fun.


Start on the same ledge as The Reach Around but move straight up to a corner with a crack in it. Climb the corner to a narrow ledge. Clip a pin then continue to the top. Move up on 3rd class terrain to and anchor off a tree. Rap the route or move right and rap The Silver Sword.


Single rack to 3". One piton protects the final moves to the top out.
