BETA PHOTO: Climb straight up to the obvious dark round hueco ...


The first line of bolts to the left of Relentless, this climb is a touch awkward getting up to the crux which is a deadpoint stab to a hueco on off-balance feet. Well, that's one way to do it. Once you hit the hueco, it's fun climbing up the dihedral up high.

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

Definitely helps to be tall on this route. The crux is definitely before the throw to the hueco. One of the hardest 12a's at the Wing.

I broke the start crimp off of this route earlier this week, didn't even notice it was gone until the next attempt. In its place is now a slightly smaller and less positive crimp, but it still goes and it is still possible to start statically off the ground. I don't think this changes the overall grade of the route, which is a really stiff 5.12a by Red Wing standards.

Seems like a lot of holds are missing from the start. Traversed in from the crack at the first remaining crimp/ledge. Very sequence/beta dependent and quite hard.
