Alex, at the ancient tricam

Description 

It is a fine route. Rating is consistent through the whole route.

Location 

Eight feet to the left of Push-Mi Pull-Yu. Climb into the large alcove. Once out move to the left and climb straight up.

Protection 

Nice top rope setup. Can be shared with Push-Mi Pull-Yu

Makes a good lead. The fixed tricam has been there for at least 15 years, so you shouldn't trust it for much.

I think the red line is a bit off in this photo. Doesn't Agnostic climb up into the big niche and step out onto the ledge above it then up the crack straight above. It's minor I know but the moves indicated by the photo up the face to the left of the alcove are much harder then 5.7, steeper, and involve a good runout.

I'd agree with Burt.

Fun route, I always enjoy it. Thanks for adding it to MP!

This thing was really good but it was scary! Anyone else think maybe this should have a PG13? Or did I do it wrong? That face was super thin climbing with the gear well below my feet and not too high off the deck. I felt much more comfortable on Grand Inquisitor than this.

I'd give you PG13 on some of the variations here ... but even so I feel it is safer than Grand Inquisitor, myself.
