Climb past 3 chain draws to a large, intimidating roof. Above the roof, a welcomed rest is encountered before tackling the steep, boulder problem crux. Huge buckets above the crux offer another rest before negotiating two more, smaller roofs, the second one being an onsight killer. Finally, a moderate dihedral leads you to the anchor. Besides the first 8 feet of this route, the rock is of high quality and the climbing is superb.


Start 8 feet left of Flying Circus. Lower off with a 60 meter rope.


Eleven chain draws to a two bolt, steel-biner lower off.
