This line features a wildly exposed rail traverse near the top. Unfortunately the start (as intended) is loose, but this can be avoided by climbing the first 2 bolts of Aftermathematics and traversing left to join this route at the third bolt. In the business, the rock is relatively solid, though dirty in spots.

Nevertheless, the movement is fantastic, featuring a sequential, gymnastic rail traverse that grows in exposure as you inch left, culminating in an exciting mantel to a good rest. A few more pumpy moves work out the 45-degree overhang along a right-facing flake. When the flake ends, grope up rounded granite jugs to the anchor.


It is the center route.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. A stick clip is mandatory. Stick clip the 2nd bolt, or traverse in from Aftermathematics.
