This very aesthetic and potentially pumpy route follows the blunt arete to the left of "Sex Packets." No stand-out cruxes, but it feels long and sustained, not to mention exposed. Less steep than From Chocolate to Morphine another fine .11d in the Gorge, this route will seem less pumpy if you have good technique. Considering the high quality of this route, it seems under-traveled.


When facing Pick Pocket this route is located to the right and begins off of some ledges.

The full name for this route, "Biochemically Compacted Sexual Affection", comes from the song Sex Packets, which incidentally is the 5.12a just to the right.

My favorite 11d in the Gorge.

One of the best 11d to on-sight. Hmmm... with all that chalkmarks on-sight is impossible. Thus it is one of the best 11d for your flash attempt.
