This is a rather serious lead. Most will TR (easily setup after leading Transcon). However, for the solid 5.11 leader it can provide a very memorable and rewarding onsight experience.

Start at Roseland and traverse left along a ramp until you are a bit right of Transcon. Head straight up the steep face above, and pull a difficult and somewhat bizarre mantle maneuver (crux) to a stance. Climb the face (second crux) up and right. From here, steel nerves and a marginal placement in a shallow, flared horizontal will get you to the anchor.


Same start as Roseland.


3/8"-1" cams (blue through red aliens; doubles of yellow and red helpful), small to medium wires
