Brother Kabir following, a bit better perspective ...

Start in the obvious west facing vertical crack that splits a face east and slightly uphill of God Knows. Continue up, and slightly right, past three bolts to a small ledge/ bulge on the right side of the tower. Climb past one more bolt to the anchors. The line is fun and with more climbing it will clean up reasonably well.

NOTE: Poor rock quality even with extensive cleaning; climb carefully!


Around the south side of the main face and slightly uphill.


4 bolts and a single rack to 3 inches.

Did this route again with my brother last month and found it to be MUCH better than I remembered. I think Ben and others have helped clean it up, or maybe the rains washed away all the dust and debris. Anyway, it was way more fun and secure feeling than when David and I first sent it, so would recommend this to anyone wanting a fun mixed route in Godhead South. Also, I don't think it's as hard as I originally rated it to be. Would love input on that, though.

Yes, this route is upgraded to a three star route now. Recommended!

Stay tuned for an 11+/12-, "Owls in Heaven", that involves a beautiful crack to a body length scale roof pull and into a Bombay Chimney in stellar rock. Both David and I got the move at last on top rope, but I put in a bolt to protect the roof and by the end of it all we were too spent to send the route. So, next time and it'll be a hoot!
