This is well-protected at the hard moves. After the 5th bolt, angle left on easy rock to the anchor. Be careful with a 50m rope. Expect lichen.

See Where's Ron for photo.


30 feet right of Tinnitus, begin at the lowest part of the cliff.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor, the same anchor as Release the Kraken.

I thought this was the most fun of the routes I did on this wall. Every time it seemed like it would be hard, a good hold could be found. Not obvious holds, but they are there.

A small cam (#0.5 c4?) would be helpfull to reach the first bolt. It's a little scary without. Also, there are no rings at the anchor.

I put chains on the anchors today. Let's see how long they last.
