Start matched on slopey embedded and head up through some pockets, pinches and incredible crimps. A nice combination of power and tech for the grade.

Note: There's an extension bolted above the current anchors that is not clean or safe to be climbing on as of yet.


Just left of Super Shotgun.


Fixed draws to anchors.

This route took some serious mojo to get built. Bob Banks was the first person (that I know of) to put some work into the line. He lost interest quickly and the route was abandoned for almost 2 decades until Tom Ruddy got psyched and put in quite a bit of work on the route. Even still I spent multiple days myself fixing it up before it was ready to be climbed.

This route is super fun and very sustained feeling given the height! Now moderate climbers have the opportunity to crank on monos as well.
