Start above a rock pedestal and carefully climb to the first of 3 bolts, or stick clip. Crux your way up to ramp and climb to easier ground and gear. Continue up and left on jugs past more gear and a bolt to a funky overlap top-out at a 2 bolt anchor. Save a 2 inch cam for the overlap at the top.


This is in a dark streak above a rock pedestal/mount. It is just left of "flaming lips", which is the leftmost of 3 bolted lines.


Standard rack up to 3 inch cam

The first 25 feet of this thing is the most difficult to read rock I have ever climbed.

Great addition! I really liked this route. The first 3 bolts are sustained and exciting. The upper section had great position and movement. The final moves to the anchor are wild, especially if you don't have a second #1. I had purple tricam, which was okay.
