Description

There are many challenging cruxes on this one! The opening crux sequence is very sequential, and the rock a little chossy. It is highly advised for the belayer to belay right at the start to minimize groundfall potential clipping the 2nd bolt. After this, it is easy climbing up to the final headwall. The headwall has many tricky and balancy moves, so it makes for a real challenge! It steepens even more just below the top, but thankfully, once you stretch for them, you get some good holds.

Location

This is right of Molotov Cockfight.

Protection

11 bolts plus 2 for the anchor.

I found this route to be hard for the grade. The beginning is very tricky as well as a tough crux move higher up. It will likely get easier once it is climbed more as the good holds will get chalked, and the chossy feet in the beginning will get cleaner. Apr 23, 2018

Felt like the beginning was 10b and awkward, but the top was great. Apr 25, 2018
