Description [Suggest Change]

Emphasis on dirty--it requires a good brushing after each monsoon season. If you catch it soon after a good brushing, it's enjoyable. If not, it's going to be heinously dirty.
Climb quality rock through a sharp crux to better, featured holds. Tech it out a bit in a lower angle groove to a tricky bit of moves on highly water-polished rock to shared anchors with Gnosis.

Definitely may be dirty on account of being a natural water runoff line but the rock is great quality. It may need a bit more TLC to clean up the dirt every now and then. The featured rock is really fun to climb.

Location [Suggest Change]

The first route left of the obvious finger crack start of Gnosis

Protection [Suggest Change]

8 bolts to shared anchor with Gnosis. Brush to clean up runoff residue and lichen.
