BETA PHOTO: e. Tap Dancing 5.11a X ***


Located on the left side of the Negropolis formation. This is a steep face climb up the outside face of the largest pillar. TR or X rated lead.


If you're leading it, you're essentially soloing once you get about half way up. Originally led with only two knifeblade pitons and a thin nut or two for pro.

There is currently one fixed knifeblade about 15 feet up.

There is a 2 bolt anchor with chains on top.

there's a place for a bomber RP about 10 feet above the pin placements. The original two pins were about 1-2 feet apart, with the top most pin having been pulled in a fall.
