Pull a few moves to get under the roof, set up for the huge crux throw, pull a couple more tough moves out the roof, then fight the pump at the sloper finish before the chains.


This route goes out the right hand side of the roof.


4 or 5 bolts then the chains.

I'll go with Mr. Carrier on this one. Not much harder than .12b which is the grade in the guide. First time on it was really rough but the sequence is there. That angle is just unforgiving! Definitely a reach dependent route (I'm 5'9" +3 reach) and don't feel I could have pulled off the initial reach out the roof without every bit of my span. Deserves more traffic, perfectly bolted.
