This climb started to the left of “Guidekiller” climbing up and left through a big bulge (12d); however, a direct start was bolted in 2008 by Dana Ruddy. Now instead of climbing into the route from the right, the direct start begins more or less right under the roof - there are two new bolts. This direct start will likely render the original variation obsolete, as it isn't quite as hard and is a better line. The crux is getting established on the face above the bulge. From there, the route is continuous pumpy and technical to the top. It can easily be top roped off the “Tricks” anchors.

Descent Options:

Rap or lower from anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Love it!

Really liked this climb - tricky to the very top; in fact the last hard moved spit me off a few times before I eventually got the redpoint.
