Description 

This is an exceptionally fun route. Some say it's Main Elks best route. It is certainly the best that I have done so far. Like many of the routes here, there is an initial chossy section, but once you're through it (it's not that bad), the climbing is just one groovy move after the next. There are multiple 5.11ish cruxes, right up the center of the wall. This is one of those routes that reminds me why I enjoy climbing.

Location 

It is left of Blue Angel and two routes left of the black arete.

Protection 

13 bolts.
