This route is on a vertical wall with many horizontal ledges. Climb up on easy moves for the first twenty feet until miraculously, all of the holds fade away. Locate the select few microcrimpers that are offered, then figure out how to use them to reach the jug 4 feet above your head. Head to the anchors on easier holds.


Around the corner a few feet from Pain Is A Spice.


7 bolts, rap anchors.

neat route. watched several partners try in vain to static thru the crux; just jump!

It is possible to move about 5 feet to the right and climb statically but not necessarily easier through the crux section, feet are sparse.

I'm sorry 11b/c my ass! This is an 11a with a 12a crux unless you step way right which appears to be off route

Couldn't agree with you more Nick. Think something might have broke on this one. Porter's grades are stiff but true.

Fun... kind of a one move wonder although I recall difficult move higher up but not as committing as the lower crux.
