Description 

You'll find this enjoyable and challenging route just left of Escapade (5.11a), which makes it the leftmost climb on this small crag.

This is basically a harder version of Escapade, so if you like that route you'll enjoy this one too. Climb a mostly vertical/slightly overhanging face on good holds past a low crux to another heartbreaker slab crux at the top. It's amazing how slick Gorge slabs can be, but trust your feet and don't tense up and success is in the bag.

Excellent pitch, excellent change of pace between strenuous bulge start and slabby finish. I find the start considerably harder than the finish.
