This climb while not quite as classic as other Midnight surf routes is still worth a run. Climbs more like a standard RRG route with a more diverse set of holds than other Midnight Surf routes. There are fewer lock of moves between huge holds, and more pockets and edges.

Begin in a small right facing dihedral and make more difficult than they look moves past the first few bolts to a nice rest. Contemplate the large roof ahead, When ready battle thru the roof and up the pumpy headwall saving some juice for challenging moves getting to and clipping the anchors.


On the left side of Midnight Surf, 2nd route right of the waterfall and large ampitheater. Shares start with "Starfish and Coffee" which breaks left. Next route right is "The Crucible"
