The route begins on bouldery moves on a vertical/slightly overhanging wall section leading up to a roof. Just below the roof is a large hueco-slot feature ideal for a #4-#5 camalot. Leaning back and reaching up from underclings, one reaches up to scrappy holds above the roof. There are two bolts at the beginning of this reach-up-through roof transition, one is an old Petzl self-drive with aluminum hanger. Pull up through the steepish upper wall section on a variety of holds through a vertical upper wall section.


This route is about 10 feet left of Suspended Animation. Both are on the right end of the Revelations wall.....the wall just up around from the Graham's Crack area and that has the route Revelations on its left end.


Mixed, crux protected by bolts. A large cam (#4 WC - #5 BD is a possible size range) is helpful in protecting under the roof, before the bolts. No fixed anchors

this photograph i think correctly shows the location and path of NI.....but it is incorrect in its portrayal of S. Animation in that this route, when it hits the upper roof feature, follows it further out to the right that is shown, following the ascending crack formed in the stone as its right edge turns upward

Looks accurate

I moved the l photo to Suspended Animation
Take a look and see if it is correct now.

Forgot how steep the South is! Fun route that is over relatively quickly. Bolts easy to clip without a 4 or 5
I ended up using the 4 higher up. Lots of lichen up top but easy enough
