Start up dark left-facing dihedral, then continue up nice corner above to reach first of three bolts. Commit to steep face on left, then pull over the stout roof and clip the chains.


Gear to 1", optional #3 Camalot, and bolts.

Why is this labled as "trad". The crux is all bolts and the trad part is 5.9 or so.....Shouldnt it be labled as mixed? IMO it is more like 11+. Very reachy....the 5.9 part down below is very solid and fun climbing.

I consider the crux throw to be the single most strenuous move out there.

[Edit: I agree with Kev's comment above...]

Think to tape your left middle/ring finger over the proximal phalanges, I hung on that sharp side pull in the crux a bit more than is advisable in my first go and my ring finger was numb for several days.

Got my second or maybe third bail biner off this route today. Name the color and get it back if you trade me a bottle of beer. :)

Here's a tip: if you lead The Darkhorse (next route left, 5-10-) you can easily tag the anchor for tunnel vision on the way down and and toprope Tunnel Vision (or get your gear back)

Finally - I'm hearing that 11b might be a sandbag. Is it?
