Description 

Another great trad line at East Peak. The description is for the "present" free line put up by Ken in the mid 80s. Climb broken rock for the first half of the route to the horizontal crack system that spans the cliff. From the horizontal follow the steep crack system just right of the arête to a sequential and powerful crux sequence. Rated 11+ in "Hooked on Trap Rock" this route is a significant step up from other trap rock 11s.

Location 

To the left of Reflections of Fall. Look for the broken shallow corner with bad rock. The free route put up by Mike Heintz and Greg Newth climbed the arête and avoided the awesome crux sequence near the top of the climb, rated 10+.

Protection 

Bring a single rack up to #4. Offset micro nuts are useful to protect the sequential crux high on the route. Tree anchors at the top.

Be mindful of loose rock in the lower section. Worth it to access the stellar upper portions and crux.
