This is the left-most route on Site 18. The crux is on the lower part of the route, involving balancy moves on small edges. Solid holds and fun moves await above. Lower with a 60m rope.


Six bolts to chain anchors.

Actually a pretty fun route. Would be a decent first sport lead.

This is definitely tougher than 5.8. I don't know if a hold broke off recently but this is easily a 5.9. This is also an awesome route. Really fun!

I agree with Mike, this seemed a little stiff for 5.8. Real solid fun!

I did this route this weekend and the first and third moves are tough, but I think the rating is fair and it is an incredibly fun route!

I agree this is much harder than 5.8 infact I was just there and based on the guide book looker is the far left route and there is no climb left of it but it could easily be rated 10a. Also the picture posted does not look like the correct route. Looker is more slabby and less petina.

I think 5.8 is fair for the slab crux down low. This route is easier than the crux on Conceptual Reality in my opinion, for example. Either way, fun climb, as is the rest of Site 18.

For added fun, set a TR and climb the line the rope falls on (this is a right-leaning route, so the TR falls to the right of it). Less balancy, more technical.
