BETA PHOTO: Start on the bolted slab, grad a rest and shoot up...


Like many of the longer routes at C.R., this route has two distinct and difficult sections divided by a sit-down rest. The lower section is a 5.12 slab that requires a hard pull on a sharp crimp with zero feet. Technical and thought provoking this section won't disappoint the slab enthusiast. The upper face is a bit easier 5.11 climbing, but the movement is fantastic. Look for an unlikely sloper with the right hand to navigate the crux. All in all a really fun route.

6 bolts and chains.

This can also be started slightly right of the slab on layback cracks. more like 5.9 in that section but with no bolts, we TR'd it but some gear would go in the cracks.

Two fun sections! A touch harder than kingdom come and certainly easier than rain days. Be careful going to the 4th bolt - falling while moving off the ledge would be very bad. This should be r rated or classified as a mixed route (you could sling a tree? or get in a cam).
