Despite sharing a start with Conception, this steep line sat unfinished for over a year.

Climb the first three bolts of Conception, then step right, make a hard/scary clip, and go straight into the first crux. Horrible slopers and awkward blocky holds lead to a good rest in a scoop below the second crux. Pull another bulge and fight through shouldery moves in a shallow corner to another rest over a small roof. Get it back and eke past some hard finger locks to better holds.

This route is totally safe but would be more pleasant if a few bolts were moved and one was added at the first crux.


This is between Conception and Genesis.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor without chains.
