  • Description 

    This pitch begins on the left side of the crag, just uphill of the start to the dihedral Prism. The start climbs flakes and cracks to a stance just below a bulge and the first bolt. The climbing is 5.9/10ish through this section and you will want a couple hand-sized cams, or possibly a very long stick clip if you were too lazy to bring gear. The first four bolts are the cruxiest section. Technical and funky. The middle of the climb is enjoyable and exposed 5.10 face climbing leading to a stance beneath the finishing overhang. One could escape left to the anchors of Prism, but then you'd miss out on the burly climbing over one of the larger roofs in Boulder Canyon.

    Stiff for the grade.


    8 bolts. A couple hand sized cams.
