This is a really great route that packs quite the punch. Pull the big roof at the bottom and cop a no hands rest above. Milk it 'cause you won't find any more rests above. Follow the bolts through a few bulges with some slopers and tough clips, and pull the final roof to the chains. This route reminds me a lot of Right Pile (hard move at the bottom followed by a relentless pump).


In the obvious alcove just right of "Smoke 'em if you Got 'em."


All bolts

You must have a lot more discipline than I do to make yourself stay in that bolt line. There are 3 other rests if you can find them, making it feel a lot more like 5.11b for tall guys. Right pile kicks my butt in comparison.

Lots of rests on this one. Cool climbing though. Very hard to see the bolts when you pull the first overhang, but keep going, they are there!
