Starts near the rock shaped like a ladder. Use the flake feature to get to the bolt line. You will negotiate a crimpy section for a few bolts. After the fourth bolt, traverse right before you have to come back left.
You will then end up in the shared section of the route to the right (Simonize 5.12b).
If you make it up there, keep it together because the rest is only 12b.


First of the last five routes that all start on the lower level.


10 bolts + anchor

Even though the route has suffered two broken holds since its first ascent, it is still doable albeit with a different beta. The crux sequence involved--at least for me--two bad sidepulls, huge leg-spread moves between tiny footholds, and a razor-sharp one-finger-and-a-half sidepull. A beautiful sequence and overall a classic line when you put it all together.
