Description 

On the far right side of the Inception wall, this route begins by soloing up the easy, 20 foot, 5.7 slab to clip a bolt at the break. Launch off into the next boulder problem, which involves a big throw off decent crimps to the good jug up left (V6 or 7). Finish up the fantastic boulder problem above the big jug to anchors very close to those of the route to the left.

While this is an upgrade from the guide, many of the routes in Heaven's Gate have been dubbed "hard for the grade", and this upgrading should be closer to the correct grade.

This is not the best route on the wall, but the boulder problem up top and the satisfaction of sticking the big throw make it worth the effort!

Location 

This is on the right side of the Inception Wall.

Protection 

4 bolts, rappel anchor.
