Description

New, mostly bolted and well protected route. Climbs the black streak to roof and finishes up arete and face. Start with a mantel past 1st bolt and follow the well protected black streak (bolts): layback up to a rest, make a committing move out right on tiny footholds and head up the technical stem box to roof. Put pro under roof and head left to a rest with pro in horizontal. Smear up the bouldery arete and finish with thin edges on face.
3 equally hard cruxes requiring a variety of techniques.

Location

Located between St. Alphonso's Pancake Breakfast and Pins, Bashies, Matches and Beer. Look for bolts heading up the black streak. Lower/rap from anchor.

Protection

8 bolts and 2 pieces of gear (.3 to #1)
Bolted anchor at top can be used to toprope.
