Great White's slightly harder sibling. Crux is a big span going right past the 2nd bolt. Stays on you as the wall steepens past the 4th bolt. Needs traffic. New titanium glue-in bolts.


Third route on the middle section of the Main Wall, just left of Great White.


10 bolts, anchors.

Less juggy and a few harder moves than Great White. Hardest move is a huge extension down low, though there is another cruxy sequence about halfway up. Redpoint crux is probably managing the pump on the sprint to the chains -- many a climber has punted off screaming with both hands on jugs and an unclipped waist-high bolt!

I realize now what you mean by "falling off with both hands on jugs" after having two holds come off in my hands. Not optimal, but damn exciting!! Fantastic route.
