Erik Gearhart mid-crux on red point.

Description 

Start off a cheater stone to avoid a wet start. Ascends crimps and gastons/sidepulls to an obvious hueco. From here climb up through the crux, a long pull off good pockets to a small edge and a mono. Then it's just pumpy 5.12 climbing through ever steepening rock.

Location 

First route left of Killer.

Protection

Don't use a cheater stone! It's one of the few lines here that go without a ladder or stone pile.

The "original" from the ground start is now perpetually wet and looks to never be drying out (at least the past year). The stack start is off a right hand edge and a left hand mono.

Last time I was here both the mono and the crimp were wet. What a great way to blow your tendons up. Why the hell do we drill monos? It's idiotic.

don't forget to link the start into Killer, and the mighty Successor/Majestik hybrid...
