Description 

Great sustained climbing. Start in a shallow corner to a steep roof/dihedral followed by a rest. Pull back onto the face and continue up long sustained moves.

Probably the best route at the grade on The Peaks/Elden. Highly recommended!

The route was originally cleaned and bolted by JJ Schlick. Big thanks to him for the original vision and hard work!

Location 

Between the Assassin and Holy Roller.

Protection 

7 Bolts
2 Bolt chain anchor with fixed biners.
