The first half of the route is more balancey, technical and delicate. The second half is more powerful and physical with some fun stemming in the moderately overhanging layback section. There is a really low angle dirty slab section at the top which seems to add a lot of rope drag for top rope belays.


Starts on the awkward hillside to climber's left of "Kinder, Gentler, Carpet Bombing". Follow the bolts to the top. Part way up the route there is an optional 10c trad route called "Collateral Damage" that forks left.


7 bolts to the anchors.

Original bolts and anchor were pretty questionable on this in 2015. Cold shut at the top and spinning.

Do you mean that the anchor hangers spin?
If so, was this just an issue about tightening the nut?
