Start up on thin crimps for a couple of bolts. Larger edges await, followed by a hands-free ledge. At the ledge, contemplate the fairly-blank-appearing dihedral above.

After being intimidated for a while, and after not seeing an obvious path, commit and start up and through the shallow dihedral. After the dihedral surmount a bulge. The angle then eases a bit to the chains (there is a bolt from the converging route to the right that one could clip, but it's a bit to the right).


The sixth line from the left. This line is easily identifiable as the bolts immediately right of the line that goes through the weakness in the roof after traversing a bit below the angled part of the roof.


9 bolts (or 10 bolts if you want), chain anchors.

This route's called "The Taken" and was put up and rated 11c by Tim Roberts.

.11c is about where I start whining and crying; I just didn't find it that hard.

I gave it a .10d because I found it easier than Send in the Frowns, which I thought was around .11a (although since you'd already told me that Tim rated that one at .11c that's what I put that one down as.)

I didn't find it to be your "classic" 11c like "Slimabeing" over to the left or even close to as hard as Maxwell House over to the right.
It's a shame that it wasn't as memorable as Send in the Frowns.
(Since sarcasm doesn't come across on the keyboard, I'm joking about the classic status of Slimabeing.)
