This route was bolted as a project in the 90's and has never seen a known first ascent. Its rumored to go at a hard 5.12+.

This route is the furthest right bolted line on the Weeping Wall. Follow small edges to a sharp finger crack, back out to the face for more small crimps, passing a total of 4 bolts, ending at a 2 bolt anchor with quick links.


A lower new 3/8" bolt with Petzl hanger was added as a first bolt to protect the lower entry crux off the ground, which leads to 3 older bolts with SMC hangers and a 2 bolt anchor with closed cold shuts and quick links. Equipped with and older single protection bolt on the top of the route for reaching the TR anchors.

Update: An additional new 3/8"x3.5" Powers Bolt and Fixe hanger was added next to the single older bolt to allow for safer access to Dread the Shred and In To Deep.

I added an additional Top Rope access bolt to shore up the single older access bolt. The new bolt is a 3/8"x3.5" Powers Bolt with a plated Fixe hanger. This also allows for easier access if setting an TR for the newer route In To Deep
