The rope is hanging through the anchor of Bernd Ar...

Description 

While technically a slab, this line is a bit steeper where it counts, and though the holds are more widely spaced, they tend to be more incut, resulting in fun, athletic movement for technically-minded climbers.

Begin easily up chossy white rock. Traverse along the right end of the roof to gain a shallow crack, which eventually peters out halfway up the headwall. A memorable, sequential crux sequence on amazing incuts heads left, where long reaches and highsteps continue up the impressive wall. One final, knee-knocking slab problem guards the distant anchor.

Location 

Just left of center, linking intermittent vertical cracks. Study the topo closely as several lines cross this one.

Protection 

Around 10 bolts to a high anchor.
