entering the physical crux. redpoint still to come

Description 

at the chain on The Streak either bust left traversing on the ledge towards Hinterland and go up to a very interesting roof encounter, or continue up the refrigerator block and head left immediately afterwords. Going left seems to be a bit harder, but continuing up the streak seems to be the most popular. from there work your way up some powerful reaches on crimps and side pulls. Avoid going to far right and using holds on the streak to skip the crux. This is definitely the best route on the wall and deserves more attention. The first ascent history is a little murky and it seems there are two accounts. It sat untouched for quite a long time with its original bolts and some manky fixed draws,but it was rebolted in the winter of 2014 and now has nice steel fixed draws. Since its revival its seen quite a few repeats, including a flash by Vasya Vorotnikov.

Location 

Between the upper halves of Hinterland and The Streak. Identified by fixed draws with red gates

Protection 

Fixed draws installed March 2015
