Description 

This colorful line grows progressively difficult as well as committing the higher you climb. The crux, as it often is in the Jungle, is at the very end. Here is also where the gear placements come. Up to that point you were clipping bolts. With the many and varied colored species of lichen on both your right and left as well as Bryce Canyon National Park at your back, this is an aesthetic line! The route is also a great warm up for the stiffer and fine lines to the north!

Location 

Just about in the middle of the Banshee Wall between the Ban Cheese Pillar and the short route known as the "One Bolt Wonder". It is better to approach this line from the northerly descent(s) rather than come down the fixed line further south and then have to back track through some sketchy talus.

Protection 

Five quick draws gets you past the first 5 bolts and to the crux move(s). Here you will want to have a Red C-3, BD .3 and .4. Pull through these moves to chains with a quick link.

Although there may be some distance between bolts the climbing is on good rock and positive in those "blank" areas. IF you need gear in these spaces then wires and tricams may help but when you get to the top you will soon understand you are most likely out of your comfort level.

The furthest distance between pro is bolts 2 and 3 but climbing is casual and blocky. Climbers comfortable on 5.10 may only need a single 0.3 for the top but it'd be best to bring a few options as the crux can be pulled a few ways. This makes for a great warm up or a good line for the aspiring 5.10 leader as only two moves are above 5.9.
