I am a Viking.

Description 

Start with the low upward right trending flake to clip C1. There are thinker moves to clip the close C2. Climb up and left on big, reachy holds to C3, and gain the dusty ledge. Once on the ledge, go left to clip C4. Gain the nice, blond face and large, flakey system on the right for two clips and a stance on top of the flake. Climb straight up for 3 clips on good, sharp holds with pretty good feet for 3 clips and a bit of a run to the anchors.

Location 

Hike left past Menses Prow proper. I am a Viking is the first route on the right past Flashback To Acid Beach.

Protection 

8 clips to chained anchors.

This is a fairly new climb that hasn't seen much traffic, but it's a pretty fun route, well-bolted for the 5.10 leader. It may feel a little discontinuous with the ledge, but the moves from the ledge to the anchor were fun.
