This route is one of the few bolted moderate multipitches in NM. We cleaned off the big stuff but the route will require more ascents to really clean up. The first two pitches are great on good rock while the rock quality deteriorates on the third pitch. Any of these pitches can be combined, just watch out for rope drag.

1st Pitch - 5.9 60 feet
The crux is encountered just off the ground with hidden handholds and not much for feet. After a few closely spaced bolts things ease up and slab out on the way to the anchor.

2nd Pitch - 5.9 70 feet
From the belay head slightly left and up on cool rock with some really neat holds. A few tricky sequences are encountered but nothing as hard as the first pitch.

3rd Pitch - 5.9 60 feet
The rock begins to deteriorate slightly so this pitch is probably only worth doing if you want to get to the top. Continue up from the belay to a final steep headwall just before the anchors. Stay out of the dirty chossy corner to the left towards the top.


Currently the first route after the curve on the Super Hero / Gray wall. Continue past Lance's routes until the wall curves around. Just past this curve lies Metallic Gray, look for the camo'd bolt hangers in a faint dihedral. To the left around the corner is "The Oracle" to the right is "Father Daughter Dance".


Bolts and Chain Anchors. Descend by Rappelling route, a 60m rope is fine.
