Perin surmounting the roof on Taken


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.


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


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.
