Description 

Porter equipped this proud line and Eric burned off the first ascent which at the time was R/X. Needless to say, the route did not see many repeat attempts until recently when the line was made PG13.

Climb the mixed route on the right side of the wall, past three bolts to finish the same as The Hurt Locker.
The V6 crux approaching bolt three makes it difficult to stop and clip, so a fall here could be a little run out. The belayer should be paying close attention on this line.

Location 

The Main Vein area is the primary attraction at the last wall and is located on the upper right side of the cliff band.
Main Vein is the right most of two bolt lines on the steepest buttress.

Protection 

Mixed route/fixed anchors. Bring a couple small and medium cams.
