Say what?! This totally goes free.... tamarahast...


EDIT 2/15/15: route freed February 2015 by Matt Swartz!

Start with a good crack up to a bolt (balancy and tenuous 5.12) that thins to hollow seams and another couple of bolts. Traverse right, from a bolt, to a left-facing flake and finish past one last bolt (5.12 powerful crux) to a decent ledge with good bolted anchor and chains.


Starts 15 feet right of Safecracker crack. There is a good chance you can access the top of the pitch by rapping from P2 of Safecracker.


Rack singles.3-3 C4, and 4 bolts. Redpoint run could be paired down to about 4 or 5 pieces and the 4 bolts.

EDIT: Matt graciously moved a couple of the original aid bolts around to make it better as free pitch.
