Pull and rail up a flake on a bulge to a stance and clip the first bolt. Fun pockets and flakes lead to anchors at the top.

NOTE: this route is erroneously listed in the Chatt Steel guidebook as "Last Crusade."


Located in the "middle" area of Upper Leda, next to several other great routes...Speedway Boogie, Free to Think and Cracked Actor.


Bolts and anchors.

Nice route, almost as much fun as Speedway Boogie to the left. Nice roof pull at the end. The high first bolt and bouldery opening moves make for a nervy start; stick clip if you're not solid at the grade.

Fun start!

Another fun gear route. Step right between bolts 1-3 for gear in the corner than step back left up higher. The natural line feels a little easier (and more aesthetic) than going straight up the bolt line.

Manuevering the fun flake to start raises the blood pressure a smidgen but continues onto a relaxed, smooth ride of good holds until you reach the short man crux. Trust a high sloper and prepare for the cool mantle to the clips.

Does anyone know if this is the route that the Chatt Steel guidebook calls "Last Crusade" and rates a 5.8? The images in the book look like the pictures on here but a lot of the names in the guidebook are different from Mountain Project.

MP uses the Dixie Cragger name and grade for the route. Chatt Steel lists this route as "Last Crusade" (5.8).
