Starts up a mostly fingers crack to a roof. Pull the roof on a good knob and an okay pinch to a strenuous lieback/undercling. A big move brings you to better holds and 10-12 feet of easy climbing to a 2 bolt anchor shared with: British Invasion and Eagle's Traverse.


Heavy on smaller pieces. There are 2 fixed pins. The first looks pretty good. The second doesn't seem to be driven very far into the crack, so I would recommend girth hitching it close to the rock (fun on lead) rather than clipping the eye.

Somehow, the onsight happened, it just clicked, and I was told by Keith, Alan, and Court that the route was .11+. I barely made it but was surely blessed. Fight like a Brave is a bit harder in my opinion, but Keith onsighted that as well, with all his might and determination. It might be time to replace quite a few of the bolts in the Gunnison Valley. Anyway, as always, pull down like you mean it.
