This is the leftmost route on the east face of Switchblade. The first bolt is to the left of a crack. Climb up broken ramps aiming for a shallow, left-facing dihedral. Climbing out of the dihedral to the face above is supposed to be the crux, but the holds are still pretty small above the crux. The anchor is guarded by another heart-breakingly thin section. Get a good rest while you can.


11 bolts plus anchors.
