This relatively unheralded classic lies on the left side of the Dos Equis Wall and features thin tenuous climbing throughout most of it's entirety. At the top one can finish direct via a hand crack or cut left along a ramp with a fixed pin (unless it's missing).

Originally done without any bolts, this is still a climb to grab your attention for the duration as it is thin, balancy and technical. Excellent moves on good stone make this a gem of the Indian Cove area.


4 bolts, pro to 2"

I completely agree that this is an unheralded classic. And what a bold fa, without the bolts. Even with the bolts it is a pretty high adrenaline gig. I thought it was pretty full on when I did it, so I'll throw down for .11c. But whatever... a great line.

The bolts on this thing have been replaced as well as updated anchors.
