Jim on the FA


Tricky and hard moves lead to a big ledge. Above it gets hard again and finishes with a fun traverse to the right. At this point as with many routes at newly developed walls You can expect bits and pieces to fall off while climbing and lowering off.


Starts just before the step up that leads to the start of Gearhead as well as the left end of the wall. Start is below a big roof with a corner chimney on the left (Gearhead). Starts by climbing thin right facing corner to larger left angling stepped corner.

Limited consensus so far is this route is harder than 11 Is Out 12 Is In.

Regardless it is one of the best lines on the wall.
