Balancy throughout with on your feet climbing and lots of technical movement with the crux down low as you slap your way up the slippery arete. The finish is memorable - a rounded mantle that feels further above the last bolt than it really is.

Great climbing on this route that's quite different in character than the usual enduro jug hauls and steep crimpfests. It's probably best to climb this on cooler days lest the climb feel any more insecure than it already is.


Located around and right from the prominent left-facing corner system of Forbidden Fruit on the left arete on the huge slab and marked by a large white mushroom painted onto the rock.


8 bolts, chain anchors (shared w/A Handful of Harpies)

Good climbing throughout. Never pumpy, but it makes your think all the way up.

I got shut down on this at the first crux, about a third of the way up, (seems tough beyond this too). I'm just starting to climb into the tens, so it's no wonder. But, I enjoyed pushing myself and meeting my limits! TR, by the way.
