A must do on the Pin Head wall.

Two cruxes, one low and one high with a powerful finish through the roof.

The 15 feet of easy climbing in the middle is welcome after the pumpy start and quickly forgotten as you tackle the face below the roof.


Just right at the top of the trail. Look for a low bolt that serves as a belay bolt and protection bolt.


Bolts, Chains/biners

One of those routes I look forward to doing again. Love the powerful crimps low and the slopers that get you under the roof and the killer fingerlocks above. This route will rain on you for a while but the big stuff is solid. The wedge shaped flake at the lip has been pulled on for all it is worth.

Bottom crux seems harder, wonder if something came off?

I agree but it is a bit easier if you are taller so I doubt anything came off.

Fabulous route with nice variety. My favorites at the crag so far are: Go Speed Racer, Arterial Flow, and Critic's Choice, in that order.
