Description [Edit]

The crux for me was near the start, getting up above the gap and into the crack.

Location [Edit]

At the right end of the roof, there is a gap with a vertical crack above it. This is in between Bolt Line and the large block under Ariel's Brassiere.

Protection [Edit]

Bolted anchor at the top.


The crux is definitely that start. Folks' opinions of this route's difficulty covered a greater range than just about any other PK route as I was gathering info for the guidebook. Everything from 5.6 from the folks who cruised the start to 8+ from folks who got shut down. Jul 14, 2017
