At the second bolt.

This is to commemorate the end of a long standing collaboration of my wife with a local brewery. At meeting a few days before we put this route up, she was given a "Beer for Life" card. Thanks, Kim and Jodi.

To the left of "Into the Black", 20 feet up the ramp, step off a rock spike, follow bolts to a slightly overhanging headwall followed by a steep bulge.


9 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Did this on accident looking for another line on Cat Slab. Very fun climb, some holds are very brittle.

This is a fun climb, and I think it is easier than "Into the Black" to the right. I am glad there are consensus ratings on Mountain Project. I don't think this is quite an "11" for difficulty. It is a hard "10".
