Slab to steep corner, back to slab, then up a slightly overhanging headwall. A little dirty still but quite fun. Watch out for the "butt crack" feature up high, it tends to eat ropes.

Best to have a follower clean the route, to avoid getting your rope stuck, and due to the slightly wandering nature of the route.


Shallow slab to corner on the left side of the Tombstone.


12 bolts, #1 and #2 camalot for the second slab section. Rap anchors.

This climb is located around the corner and right of Birthday Boy (Visionary buttress). The second slab is easy 5.7. Placing the two pieces of pro was very comfortable. If you're confident climbing 5.10 and you have a few nuts don't let the cam recommendations scare you away!

This route uses every inch of a 60m rope!
