This route climbs the shallow corner through a steep bulge to small roof and subsequent headwall to the right of the Deep End. This is powerful and bouldery on small holds with some long reaches. It is rather beta intensive.

"See the morning sun
on the hillside.
If you not livin' good,
gotta travel wide...."


Start on the first three bolts of the Deep End before breaking right (straight up) for six bolts to the same anchor as Deep End.


9 bolts to chain anchors. Bolts protect the cruxes well but are a little bit too spaced to provide convenient working of the crux from the ground. It is easiest to hang the draws and preview the route when lowering off from the Deep End.

Great route! I've looked at this for years while lowering off the Deep End anchors. The 2 bolts in the giant detached flake on the last quarter of the route make me a little nervous. The bolts are solid, but I'm not so sure about the flake. I didn't fall on them, but it's not unlikely someone would. It's still pretty pumpy through there.
