  • Description 

    This route starts with the first two bolts of Wishbone. After the second bolt, trend up and left towards a series of overlaps. The first overlap will protect you if the RP at the second overlap rips. At the second overlap, clip a fixed RP, and make a big move to a good rail (crux). One more hard move and then you can look left for a jug and gear options. Keep climbing upwards, and after you plug your last piece of gear, stay on the face left of the Wishbone anchors. Climbing more to the right is possible, but the lichen will add to the excitement.

    The face climbing on this route is brilliant and amazing!

    There is a lot of runout climbing, but there are a few spots for gear. It is easily top roped from the Wishbone anchors.


    This is between Wild Turkey and Wishbone. Finish on the same anchors as for Wishbone.


    RPs and small gear to 0.5.

    I climbed this again. I don't think it's as scary as I made it sound. I used 4 gear placements, and you can double up on 3 of them.

    Are y'all sponsored yet or what? Route looks real sick, vomit-like.
