Description 

Grand Illusion; what a great route. These are some of the biggest holds that you will ever get scared on.

This climb takes you straight up the belly of the prow into illusions of grandeur.

From the belay platform, climb the right bolt line through the roof. Trend right across the lip of the roof at the second bolt to pull over. Climb the face through cryptic sequences to the base of the overhang. Clip the first bolt on the prow 24" and take the left line through large holds underneath a bulge. Pull a blind crux over the budge and take the right line through the center of the immense overhang above. Incredible jug climbing leads to the crux at the top.

Location 

Second route from right on the prow.

Protection 

Sport route.
