BETA PHOTO: Just below the crux black streak section.


A 5.10 start leads to the 2nd half of the route which is about a dozen or so 5.11+ moves in a row. May be one of those rare routes that is easier for smaller folks. Unlike say -- most of the routes at the TriTower.

I'm only giving it 2 stars, but it's a strong 2 stars.

The route was harder until EFR bugged me about cleaning it up. After cleaning, a much easier crux beta was discovered.


Left-most route on RIGHT face. Black streak with cabledraw at bulge.


6 bolts plus a cabledraw (on a 1/2 inch bolt) and snap-links for an anchor.

As with all routes on the steeper right side the higher you go the better it gets. Nice job cleaning this one up John! I dare say you did a better job on this than I may have done on the routes to the right. Not that anyone is going to die but bits and pieces will dribble down for awhile.
