Start on "A Thousand Yards of Drift", then clip the bolt on the roof and pull a hard boulder problem onto the face of a pillar above. Sustained climbing above on the pillar.

Aesthetic position.


Starts on an arete just right of "Live to Pull". First bolt could be stick clipped, but people 5'10" should be able to reach the first bolt easy enough from a stance.


9 bolts

5.10 arête climbing to a hands free rest below the obvious bulge. Seems like a V5 ish boulder problem to me to get over the bulge and establish oneself at a reasonable shake at a small flake. 5.11+ climbing up the pillar on deceptive and slopey holds leads to an easier finish. Great route! A little loose feeling on the top half.
