Climbs the line of bolts to the right of Redhead. Thin opening movements to a bolt-protected corner. Pull two easy roofs, clip high, and make a powerful move off of thin holds. Keep it together on the easier, well featured slab to the anchors.


Starts to the immediate right of Redhead.

Led with Kaiven in 2010. The crux clocks in at about V3, though there is a fair amount of climbing beforehand with good rest stances just before the move. Very, very fun climb!

Edit - i totally sandbagged thus one. - I guess it makes you cool to downgrade routes. Just repeated the route today - honest 11+ for the first three bolts, followed by hard ten/easy eleven until the roof. The crux is legit 5.12, and fairly reach dependent. Amazing route regardless, and really good stone.
