Perin surmounting the roof on Taken

Description 

A thin, nerve-wracking start through several somewhat-sparse-feeling bolts leads to briefly easier ground. The next order of business is unlocking a burly, exciting roof, followed by hanging on to the end while the pump gradually subsides.

Location 

Starts midway up the steeper section of trail at the far right side of the south-facing wall.

Protection 

Nine bolts and anchors. If you used a stickclip on the first bolt you wouldn't be the first.

This was a route that Chris Brown started bolting and then ADD kicked in and he stopped. Kory Kowallis has a very particular set of skills. Skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills perfected for finishing abandoned routes.
