One of the finest single pitch sport climbs in Vermont. The same fine start/middle as Encryption but with a harder/longer ending.

Climb Encryption to the 9th bolt. From here, traverse left until you're directly below the ending bulge on Steppin' Razor, then power straight up through the redpoint crux of Steppin' Razor to a lower off anchor.


Start as for Encryption. First route left of the anchors for the fixed line.


11 bolts, lower-off anchors
