BETA PHOTO: Start on bolt 1 of The Strike. Trend up and right.


Start on the beginning of The Strike, sharing the first bolt. Power straight up a steep series of jugs, pinches, laybacks, and gastons to a quick shake. Crimp your way into the scoop, rest up, and transition into a technical series up and right to the ledge just below the anchors. Cruise to the two-bolt anchor at the top of the Strike arête. It is highly recommended to hang a double slung draw on bolt three to clip that bolt from lower holds. Otherwise, bring an attentive belayer for the lower section. This may feel easier if you can reach through some powerful sections.

The lower section of the route is in the shade throughout the day, but the top does see some sun.


This starts in the same place as The Strike, climber's right of El Gato Monte (SW face of the block).


5 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.
