Start on a bulge and move left to the second bolt before firing straight up the steep wall that slowly eases in angle. Great fun, without many cruxy moves, —just a building pump.


In between Victim of Fate and Death from Above


6 bolts

This is a really great route... Except for the 3-4 death blocks between bolts 1 to 3. Makes for a sketchy start for your belayer. It's easy to skip the one between bolt 2-3 but the lower ones seem pretty essential to the route. Be careful on this one.
