Good rock, nice features, climbs well, a fun short route and a nice complement to Touch of Teflon. The protection was surprisingly good. I got in 7 pieces, twice in pairs. A couple pieces might not hold big falls and the gear placements require some work, hence the PG rating, but overall surprisingly straightforward.


The rounded arete immediately right of Touch of Teflon. Start up the scoop just right of the arete. Finish as with Touch of Teflon.


Small cams and small to medium wires. One bigger cam protects the start.

Nope. Like a bunch of folks, I looked at it and wondered...

IMO, this route is more just a tr variation to Touch of Teflon

Noticed the tr/variation comment, so I drew the line in on the existing photo for Touch of Teflon, etc. Point is there is an independent line that can be reasonably lead with gear and bolts are not warranted.

Nice find DD! Sure I did this years ago on TR but agree its a distinct route worthy of lead. I got seven pieces also but have to admit one was a purple TCU on Daily Diatribe. The alternative was one or two micro nuts to protect what I thought were the crux moves. Maybe next time I will be brave?
