Tricky all the way up, with the crux at the top. Has SS glue-in bolts. Bolts are spaced out a little more than some of the other routes. The first route to go in here (2004).


Look for the huge gold chains on Walt's Wall; it's also set off from the other routes by the SS glue-in bots.


8 bolts to chains (with lowering carabiners, don't steal these!)

Great route, with three distinct cruxes broken up by good rests. The rests are the only thing keeping the route from being four stars, IMO. Sneaky and sequential moves, as is the theme on this wall.

The bolts aren't super close together, but the placements are well thought out and the falls are clean (trust me on that). 8 bolts to chains (with lowering carabiners, don't steal these!).
