The wild exit.


Start in the deep alcove, the main route goes up the left side. We did the 10b variation on the left that starts with a nice hand crack to a stance near the razor blade flake. Jam, squirm, chimney, etc. up to the exit "thing" for lack of better words. Do some wild moves to squeeze out of the roof/slot. I was able to get a #4 at the top of the slot to protect the move.

We rapped from the anchors of Punch Line. This is a super fun route, I would do again.


It is located in the alcove left of Punch Line.


Bring a SR up to a #4 Camalot. I would save the #4 for the final move.
