BETA PHOTO: R.I.B. is the climb on the right


My favorite climb here. This is the tallest climb on the wall and thanks to a 12" glue in bolt it goes through the lightly overhanging rock at the top of the cliff. Start on the dirty slab and clip a bolt before getting to the actual climb. BETA ALERT: Follow a series of wacos to two small crimps and a dyno to a large waco. Move up and left to a hidden crimp rail above a block and the crux . Move quickly around a bulge through a series of crimps. Climb up easier ground for two bolts to a high right crimp followed by a long reach up and left to a waco and a second slightly easier crux (you're above your bolt but the fall is clean, I took it many times). finish up lightly overhanging jugs. a large pebble in a waco on you right makes the best clipping hold for the anchors.


Just right of Gabee and just left of the high right facing roof.


10 bolts

Awesome route! Best line up here, must do. Definately 11D. Bomber glue in bolts. Thanks for the hard work JT.

Great climbing on this one, full value!

Did a little more deep cleaning after the loss of a key hold. Have only climbed it on a fixed line but it's most likely 11D now, although the lower crux got a little easier. Also, added a bolt at the upper crux after several people told me it was scary. It's the only 5 piece expansion bolt on the route. Feel free to skip it, it's a clean fall.
