A bit squeezed in, but some nice climbing. Shares a start with Kraken, but takes the right-hand line of bolts above the low ledge. It is possible to take a completely independent line above, or use a few of Kraken's holds on the left.

The line actually moves left around bolt 5, and finishes at the same lower-off as Kraken.


Start up the same juggy, left-facing flake as Kraken.


6 bolts + 2-bolt lower-off (shared with Kraken).

Fully re-bolted with Titan Climbing Eterna titanium resin bolts and Hilti RE500 epoxy in February 2015.

Original Petzl Collinox bolts remain but Portland staples replaced by titanium hardware (including the lower off).
