A challenging line in three distinct sections. Start up on less-than-vertical limestone which gets steeper and thinner as you go. An initial crux consists of figuring out how to use what thin, tiny bits there are.

After surmounting the first thin bit (and heading left after the fifth bolt), a rest awaits as you contemplate a steepening section through the obvious roof.

After the roof use your resting skills to turn down the pump, and then head up another thin, slabby section until you really start to wonder who stole all the holds.


Starts below an obvious, dark roof and right-facing bulge. The first five bolts are shared with Unemployment line, a .12a that branches right.


13 bolts, anchors with fixed biners.

Thin, sharp, and balancy at the bottom and top. Interesting sequence through the steeper middle section on manufactured holds.
