Description 

This route starts off a boulder and moves up some technical crimpy face moves to the roof. Pull past the roof onto more technical moves. Neat moves of many varieties.

Location 

To locate this route from the Sledge Hammer contour to the southwest along the base of the west face of Turtle Dome. At some point go up a small gully then follow the ledges to the base of a steep beautiful golden wall with a roof splitting the wall.

We refer to this area as "So Close Yet So Far". "Omega Crack" is above this route.

Protection 

Stick clip the first bolt, 10+ Bolts, Chain Anchors

Excellent route, good rock quality, multiple cruxes, and a sick little roof pull! Way over bolted, but whatever... definitely worth doing!!
