Start in the corner on the left. Delicate moves up friable stone lead into more solid ground, a seam, and roof just below the anchor. The crux is the roof (bust out right).


Dozen draws and a 60 meter rope.

This route needs a major cleaning job. I broke four holds on the way up (including one above the crux roof) and another two by my partner. What concerns me is the route climbs directly above the High Wire crag gully. With all the loose rock on the approach and on the climb, we were petrified that we would send rock bombs down on all those heads climbing below. I love having new routes to do, but a route such as this should be evaluated deeply concerning equipping and/or cleaning for safety reasons. Please tread lightly if you climb in this area. This comment is for info only and is NOT posted for other to diss the guys who have put great effort into creating the tons of routes in CC that we all enjoy. Finally, I think the route climbs at about 10c.
