Description 

This route has been retro bolted and now offers two options, a direct bolts only line or the original mixed route.

Located on the face between Bitterroot and Ganesh, this route starts up a shallow corner of broken rock and clips two bolts before reaching a big ledge. From the ledge climb up through a short right facing corner, on to the face and up to a small overhang/bulge. Ascend directly up the nose of the bulge on good holds to a ledge. Continue via edgy face climbing to the top anchors.


The original line moves left of the bulge and up easy steps to the next ledge, it requires a couple pieces of gear to 1". Continue via edgy face climbing to the top anchors. Shares anchors with Ganesh.

This route has been retro bolted as of 04.17.15 and is now a fun and safe lead at 5.10. The route description above has been modified to describe the original and direct options.

This is an excellent climb, and every 5.10 climber at Ozone should try it. climbing is straight forward for the first 30', then it gets interesting, with moves you won't find anywhere else at Ozone. Pumpy sustained climbing at its best.

how hard is the climbing off the ledge? falling before the next clip would be pretty terrible

With the protection as it is now, there is no danger of ledge falls. While there are a few runouts, they are in steep and easier terrain.

the second (upper) one. Maybe I was missing something? I could only see one more bolt between where I was standing and the anchor (about ten feet off the ledge) and the last one was beneath the ledge. I ended up breaking left and finishing up kung fu.

The ledge is narrow, so you wouldn't hit it if falling before the next bolt, and with the bolt below being on an overhang, your fall would be clean. I didn't feel any of the runouts were bad, or had any potential of a ledge fall. You could protect the runout with a small tcu or nut if you wanted to.
