This route is the second bolted line on the main face and just to the right of "Crucified". Thin face climbing to a series of underclings that lead left to a scoop. getting into the scoop is the first crux. Getting out of the scoop is the second crux, a couple more bolts to the anchor.


9 bolts, chain anchor.

In my opinion, this route is difficult for the grade. The crux is technical and hard to read. It felt harder to me than many of the other 5.11a's in the area. That being said, it is a really fun route.

There is no way that this is 5.11a. Or maybe I'm a weakling. But I did flash Gun for Hire, and this one took me 7 or 8 falls.
