Description 

A fantastic route that's not in the book- definitely worth doing.

This route climbs the large, gaping, right leaning crack/feature on the left side of Lakeside (right of the gully). Climb straight up for 3 bolts, then ride the crack up and right for 5 more to the chains. Very fun, engaging, interesting climbing.

Location 

Right of the gully at Lakeside.

Protection 

8 bolts

Maybe the best 5.10 sport route in Squamish? Hysterical jug-hauling through a roof turns into an increasingly tech-y traverse that just seems to keep going forever. Committing and tricky moves take you to the anchor. A fine example of a well-bolted route, safe but exciting.

Definitely a top-100 climb! Looking from the bottom its hard to believe that it goes at 5.10+ but it is all there.
