Andre moving towards the crux


A long chossy slab leads up to the first bolt. At this point the route becomes steep with long moves between really good holds until a small overlap/undercling. The crux follows with hard technical moves off of sidepulls and crimps. The crux is relatively short but tricky.


6 quickdraws, anchor

One of the best routes at Clark. Better than Driller Instinct, in my opinion. Good flowy moves, on good rock.
