Work up easy terrain clipping two bolts below the overhang. Try not to pull off any huge blocks onto your belayer's head, especially before you clip the second bolt. Climb consistent, easy 5.12 through 3 bolts to a no hands rest ledge. Clip the high bolt on the slab, and continue up consistent, 11+/12- slab on crimps and lichen slopers to the chains.

The route has some serious choss at the beginning, even during the crux, and it seems like it never gets climbed. It has very cool moves. This is not a give away 5.12 as you have to try hard all the way til the end. There is one good rest on the slab in a big flake.


This route is right of The Citadel (11b) and left of Roll the Bones (12-). It is the second route to the left on the back side of The Citadel.


14 bolts + anchors.
