The route follows a series of huecos up the face to a large ledge, then traverses over to the end of Cold Shut (5.8). The crux comes in the first ten feet, before the ledge. Very small footholds and slippery handholds (we did it while it was raining), along with mud on the ledge just compounds the difficulty of the route. IF TOPROPING WITH COLD SHUT ANCHOR: BE CAREFUL. ALL FALLS WILL SWING YOU BACK AGAINST THE WALL WHERE COLD SHUT IS!!!


The route starts in the large hueco across from the start of Cold Shut. Swing your legs onto the rounded off edge and lay back the flake, then use the huecos from there for holds and footholds.


Same tree that you top rope from for Cold Shut. There's a crack system that you can follow for trad, along with some horizontal cracks.
