  • Description 

    This is a line that splits off of Heterohedral over a small bulge protected by 2 bolts with brown-painted hangers. It is probably easier for taller folks, with those above 6' probably thinking it is easier and those 5'6" or less thinking it is more difficult.

    Start as for Heterohedral, pop over a small bulge at a left-angling crack. Continue up less-than vertical terrain along a groove with limited natural protection to finish with the last bolt or two of Diamonds and Rust.


    Start as for Heterohedral.


    3-4 quickdraws plus a light rack of gear to a #3 Camalot.

    Difficulty will vary greatly with height and finger size. A short person with fat fingers will not like this.

    I'm 5'6", fat fingers and did find some good beta for keeping it 10+!
