Taylor sticking the deadpoint during a burn.


Interesting features on a slightly overhanging wall. Make a long deadpoint move to a jug rail, then head left past the crux sloper. No stopper moves, but not much for rests either. Good introduction to 5.12.


To the right of Gnarwhal, and just left of a prominent arete.


5 bolts, anchors.

There is also a "Riptide" at Patrick's Point on Wedding Rock, one of the original routes there. The bigfoot guide also lists a "Centipede" at both Promotory and Luffenholtz. Anxious for a new guide with these new routes.

This is a fantastic route. Highly suggested!! Incredible moves the whole way with a really wonky crux. Give it a try.

Awesome route with great movement - good rock on the whole but a little chossy toward the top, ripped a decent size rock off which (fortunately) landed a couple feet from my belayer.
