A very thought provoking route with just classic technical sequences, just enough when you need it. Considered by many as one of Skaha's best at the grade.


The second bolt line to the left of the low roof marking the start of Mortal Combat, or the next line to the right of Timorous. The second bolt sits just above a horizontal grey streak of rock


10 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor with chains.
