AKA: "High Tide Traverse" Start: Caress of Steel, climb "Between The Lines", end: Riptide anchors. Really fun route, good addition to an older wall, pretty obvious traverse. crux is the route 66 bottom and mandela crux.


Start on the big pocket on Caress of steel, work your way right, clip the first two bolts on Steel Monkey, go right and clip the 2nd-4th bolt on Route 66, go right and clip the 4th and 5th bolt on License to Thrill, traverse the pocket line over the roof making the clip on Flight fright over to the rest on Mandela, work the crux on Mandela and finish on the Riptide Anchor. 3 extended draws eliminates drag (on the 2nd, 5th, and 7th)


12 bolts (no new bolts added)

After getting on this one, I think it's the best route at the membrain. Even though this is just a linkup, it combines the best portions of multiple routes and makes for a pretty long route on a fairly short wall as well. If you haven't done this one, get on it, it's really good!
