Description 

Well, somebody needs to break down and enter this line as it's a glaring omission of a classic from the Mustache routes.

As noted in the Lewis/Croft guide this is a visionary route, the first sport climb on the wall. Interesting that one of the hardest lines was also the first.

A little off vertical, techy, and somewhat sharp hold face climbing.

Follow the black patina up and a little left past four bolts. A couple more bolts connect with the next set of black patina flakes. Up and right a little as the patina disappears, then up to the anchor with a final sequence at the last bolt.

The first bolt is kind of high and a little difficult to clip. It is nice having it high once clipped.

Location 

Between Double Dog Dare and Stone Cold Fusion.

Protection 

11 bolts. 2 bolt Mussy anchor.
