Difficult start. Slap the sloping arete and slap again for a hidden-edge-like feature. Clipping the second bolt is the first crux. Getting out of the underclings in the hueco up higher is the second crux. You'll need power and endurance to finish off.


Left of The Scene Is Not For Sale (5.10d); start on a boulder.


9 bolts, chain anchors

The hardest moves are down low, but save some juice for the upper crux which can feel harder if pumped.

This route is probably my favorite sport route that I've ever done. Once you can figure out the moves to the second bolt, then it's just keeping up your endurance to the top. Great route!

This route is excellent for New Jack City. A route that I did not fully appreciate until I could climb it smoothly.
