o·nus (n.)

1. A difficult or disagreeable responsibility or necessity; a burden or obligation.
2. A stigma or blame.

and a burden it is....this route fits both definitions.

Difficult climbing up a stigmatic face. Begin up a right leaning series of blocks and climb this odd section to a mini roof and feasible rest. Clip a bolt and quickly meet a sparse, barren crux. The route quickly turns to some powerful movement through a tough sequence over some very thin terrain. Fire this crux, then hold on for the pocket to pocket finish.

Powerful and tweaky, don't let this become Your Onus!


Six bolts to an anchor.


Your Onus is just right of The Bleaker at the Main Wall.

A good route with a tricky crux (v4), a bit of choss, and a great pocket finish.
