Use the corner crack to get to the first bolt. After clipping the second bolt, it's sustained action on nubbins and pockets all the way to the anchors at 110 ft. Crux hits around the 10th bolt. Like the other routes on this wall, it's currently a little crumbly and lichen covered. It will improve with time, but tread lightly.

"End of passion play, crumbling away
Veins that pump with fear
Leading on your deaths' construction
Taste me you will see
More is all you need
Obey your Master"
-Metallica, Master of Puppets


Starts in a right facing corner crack then quickly moves on to the face to the right. Right of King Nothing and left of Lepper Messiah.


12 bolts. 110 ft. 70 meter rope is mandatory.
