  • Description 

    This route was originally bolted by Dave Vuono ("Team America!") and was never completed. I moved the anchor and a couple of the bolts. Follow the line of bolts through an initial right trending boulder problem and a thin and technical crux up high. Repeat ascents have utilized a no-hands rest on the arete after the initial boulder problem.

    There has been some discussion as to the grade of this route. To me it seems about as hard as Encryption and perhaps more technical.

    Location 

    Start on the tree ledge down and right of Encryption.

    Protection 

    Bolts.
