Get ready for an action packed escape!


A big, bad muthafucka of a route that is more 5.12c than 5.12b. Take on a ton of tricky holds that will lead you in cuffs to the big house. Find a bunch of fun moves that help you deal with tiny holds that end up on jugs for your Wookie hands to crush with confidence. Rest up when you can! The last few bolts are the ball and chain around your leg where a heart breaker of a redpoint crux will slam shut on your dreams of escape. This is a super awesome route if you love punishment. You might have to drop a knee. Just don't drop the soap.


Leftish side of The Darkside Wall. Third route from the left. Look for the second line of bolts that goes all the way to the ground. The first set of bolts on the very far left forks into Passover and Gabba.


10 quickdraws. Open Anchors

Broke some pretty serious chunks of rock off the middle section. There is a pretty obvious decay of Rock quality before the crux section. Highly recommend that your belayer wears a helmet. Rest of the route is great.
