  • Description 

    This excellent sport(y) climb lies between Flakes and C'Est la Vie. It actually takes the same line as C'Est la Morte for the first 50 feet and then breaks left and follows a beautiful face and arete up a blank face to a two bolt anchor. To gain the arete one must make strenous and delicate eldo face moves at 12b. Clipping the fourth bolt comes at the crux 12b/c. Rossiter gives this route and s I think for the run-out from the last bolt to the top. It was a little run-out but after the 12b/c delicate face you just moved through, the rest of the 10d on solid flakes feels great.

    Protection 

    The protection on this route consists of 4 QDs and possibly a #2 Cam for the slab up to the face.

    At least a couple of hard-to-clip bolts--and they're those nasty old ring bolts. It would be nice to replace all these in Eldo someday.

    This is a perfect example of just how funky and awesome Eldo can be. This route is all over the place and so much fun to climb. There is chalk on it on, and it needs to be done more often. Check it out.

    Fun route. Be careful when falling at the first and second bolts. You move leftwards away from the bolts, and when you fall, you pendulum across an edge.
