Description

This is a direct, sustained line left of Crescendo that is a great introduction to harder slab climbing at the Glass.  By NC slab standards, it is well protected but don't let that fool you... you will be committing fully between bolts and gear placements if climbing at the grade.  Start with moderate moves immediately underneath a bolt at 20' up.   At the 2nd bolt, traverse right and make an exciting high step while padding the blank wall.  Find small gear above and continue on to the 3rd bolt.  Ocassionally trend right between upper bolts to find the path of least resistance and bigger fall potential, or trend directly through the bolts with harder moves.  Carefully balance and clip the last bolt before stepping back out right for the final crux move.  Figure out how to manage the final miserable sloper before finding a small but amazing hold leading to the 2-bolt anchor.  Final move felt a bit height dependent to me personally.  Go climb the line and judge for yourself

Awesome addition to the area! Great climb to break into some steeper brows, and not worry about 50 footers or decking. Well protected for the area, but definitely not a sport climb. Fun and relatively sustained 5.10+ slabbing (right of bolts) after the apron, and up until the end. Can confirm it doesn't hurt to be tall for the final crux. (I'm 6'0)

Climb is located between Southern Crescent and Crescendo (doesn't share anchor). There is an abandoned route, that goes through the headwall climbers left, between it and Southern Crescent. Haven't tried, but could be possible to leave the anchor and link up with abandoned route for hard second pitch (min 5.12). It has a bunch of bolts, would be a proud line. Nov 7, 2018

Thanks for the location beta Christian. Sounds like a fun line. The project was something Frost and I did last year but never returned to free. It probably would go in the low 12 range. Nov 8, 2018
