Begin just left of a crack system. Work up the face and eventually over into the crack. Continue up to the steep fin leading up and left. Negotiate this ridiculously bouldery feature to find two more mantles guarding the anchor.

This route has been broken. There was a good crystalized crimp along the fin right where you desperately needed it that is now mysteriously gone. The fin feature may still go but seems more like V10 now. No idea if this route still even works. An open project.


Just right of Golden Gate .11a


9 bolts, sport anchor
