Description 

Possibly the first completed route during the modern age of development at The Peaks...

Offers great crack climbing and fun movement in a large dihedral system right at the base of the entrance trail.

Unfortunately a party got the chop shop fever at some point and decided to unnecessarily chop some bolts making the start a little exciting.

It is possible to use some of the bolts that remain near although long runners will be necessary.

With a bit of hard looking you can find a small and very tricky nut placement that can (sort of) protect moves getting onto the bulge below main dihedral system.

3 stars after the fever sweats of the onsight...

Location 

Start up terrain to the right of 'Black Swan'

As I recall, there was either a highball start more left, then moving right, then, later, a more direct 5.11- bolted version to this climb? Did the "direct" version get the chopsky? I recall it was Manny Rangel that bolted (or re-bolted) that direct start, or maybe he just told me about it while we were at the crag. Either way, for sustained, technical, and yet burly dihedral, this thing really rocked my world. What a fun climb! If you are feeling dialed, it will flow, and, if not, you will absolutely be working hard for the money! Great gear in the dihedral.

I didn't see any PG13 on this.
