Long sustained route. Positive holds, the crux is at the roof.


First climb to the left of the pictograph.


10 bolts, short chain on the edge of the roof, use longs draws to avoid rope drap from the roof

There is a mini-crux somewhat below the roof, where the correct line is to climb directly up a steep arete (bolt not visible until you pull a move or two up the arete). Easy to get off route here, as there is a tempting bolt on another route to the left, and something sneaky looking to the right.

Use long draws below the roof, or it will be harder to clip the crux draw.

A truly fantastic route, but, I'd say, a total sandbag at .11b. Expect many thought provoking sequences and a stout pull over the roof.

Epic route. Definite sandbag.

FA: Andy Fitz, Ed Mosshart 1992. I think it's a little longer than 75'.
