Brush up on your bouldering before tying in for this one. It also wouldn't hurt to do some serious core training. You will need both to make your way to the top of this climb. This one is on you from the get go, but if you can make it through the bottom half it is just a matter of hanging on to the anchors as the moves ease off a little after the initial difficulties.

This is a stellar route that is SOLID at the grade.

Have fun and prepare to be humbled.


This route is almost directly in the middle of the cave. To the left is Vote with a Bullet, another amazing looking 13b, and to the right is one of the 5.14s.


10 bolts + anchors

JP once remarked he felt this was the "best" route of the grade he ever established.
