Description 

Interesting route with an exposed alpine trad route feel, even though it is bolted. First third of the climb is frictiony through a dihedral section, then flattens out a bit to the crux. Cruxy finish to the chains over a relatively blank vertical face with a few interesting pocket holds. Feels solidly within the 5.8 grade, unlike many of the over-graded routes at North Bend.

Protection 

Bolts. Chain anchors.

Weekend rock has this called 'Closeness to Forever as the Soul Bleeds Black' (apparently not an emo song title!).
