Description 

The hardest climbing is the first 3 bolts, with another crux above the 10th clip and a heart breaker thuggy finish. Initially I was stick clipping the first three bolts but realized later that I didn't need the stick clip at all.
Consistently overhung with no ledges to rest on, there are amazingly good juggy holds all the way up this thing. You will find some crimps and slopers too but it is the mind blowing pump that gives it the grade.
Beautiful, stunning and intimidating - this route is one you won't forget!

Location 

Cross the river at the bouldery constriction in the river across from the tunnel. Back track down river about 100 feet to an alcove. The route starts here and follows a faint crack/seam for 100' passing through 3 wide grayish bands splitting the otherwise pink granite face.

Protection 

14 clips and chain anchors
