Description Suggest change

Start at the base of the big overhang at the same spot where Trad kr33m and Whipping Post start. Bust a move or two to clip the first bolt, then power out the steep overhang via mostly jugs, clipping two more bolts before the crux. Pull over the bulge, and follow three more bolts up and right through a beautiful, clean panel of red stone. Continue directly into the second pitch of Prime the Pump, or bail right to the rappel anchor at the top of the first pitch of Prime the Pump.

Using this pitch as a start enables a direct, low-rope-drag way to fire into the beautiful upper half of Prime the Pump. Thanks to Matt for finding this line, to Chris Beh for the help with sussing bolt locations, and to OSMP for continuing to support new route development in the Flatirons!

Location Suggest change

Start 25 feet left of Prime the Pump, at the same crack where Whipping Post and Trad kr33m begin.

Protection Suggest change

6 bolts. A shoulder-length sling may be useful for slinging a big horn before clipping the first bolt if desired.
