Description 

Equator has three different anchors:** 5.9 to the first, *** 5.11b to the second and **** 5.11c if you continue to the anchor on top of the fin, which should be considered the full route as this description illustrates. Anchor three provides access to the spectacular Prime Meridian and burly Anti-Meridian above.

Nice hand jams to a cool roof, into a leaning wide pod through some cruxy face moves and up the flare to a clean sit down ledge. The leaning and steep nature of the route makes resting difficult and adds some exciting exposure.

Location 

Right of Japanese Cowboy.

Protection 

Single .2. Double .3 to #4. A #5 can substitute the second #4.
