Climb the vertical route with small crimper holds the whole way, and several unique bat-wing thumb hooks in the dished out middle part of the route. Balancy moves. Past the dished out section, the holds get a bit larger, with a reachy side-pull high up. The route eases off a lot 3/4 up the wall, like most routes on this wall.

Sustained difficulty. May be the hardest 5.11 route other than Gandalf, and One Step Beyond, although Dynamo Hum is right in there.


Main Canyon Left (East) Wall. In front of short slabby boulder at north end of Right Wall. Just left of Thin Crack, and right of Alaskan Crack.


TR route with bolts on top of bluff.
