Wild underclings lead to long crux moves until the angle eases. A no-hands rest lets you recover before the final headwall crux on perfect stone.

The first 12' of the route has less than perfect stone. Stick clipping the first bolt avoids any problems with this and keeps you off the rock at the base of the route.

If not for the rock at the start, along with the no-hands rest, this would be a mega classic. It still is classic.


Heads up the center of the tower formation and starts just left of the large rock at the base.
