This has interesting start moves to the first bolt followed by sustained 5.8 slab to the roof. Find the jugs over the roof, and get a high left foot on the lip to reach the last bolt and the anchor. The start and finish cruxes bump this to 5.9.


It is the farthest left route on High Wire directly adjacent to Pony Up.


8 bolts comfortably spaced to a 2 bolt anchor with quicklinks.

The high crux feels harder than 5.9 to me, but I don't gym climb, so maybe that's why. I can usually on-sight 5.9, but I couldn't do this crux even after hanging.
