Climb leisurely past some reaches to good holds through the first 3 bolts until you arrive at a large undercling and the start of the crux. Bigger pulls to smaller holds through the 4th bolt will deposit you a a good horizontal and rest. Get back whatever you can because the next section past 3 pins is another 11+ crux topped by an airy mantle to the chains.

This route is a little dirty but has great movement throughout; so 2+ stars seems good.


Start just to the right of Hope. Look for 4 bolts that lead up to a pin-protected overhang. Only 2 of the 3 pins are visible from the ground. There is another pin in the left-facing corner that you clip from the horizontal after the crux.


4 bolts, 3 pins; chain anchor.

This route is listed at 12a in the guide, but I think it's harder than that. For me, it's certainly harder than Shapeshifter (further down on the cliff) which is a soft 12b.
