climbs the crack on the left hand side of the dihedral up into the corner above the left hand side of the roof. Traverse right above the roof and then straight up to the anchor. update (summer 04): the clipping jug broke. It's no longer an easy move.

I didn't think this one would go for me. Sending it means I've onsighted harder than my best redpoint to date. The crux for me was desperately bumping my left foot smear up for a hand-foot match to my left gaston in order to turn a right foot high step rockon into a stem above my last clip. I didn't notice how loud I was vocalizing, but I drew an audience. Erin says this is his favourite route period, and even though he has years and years of experience on me, I think I agree with him. A balancy, technical, gymnastic climb.

Update (Aug 04): Repeated the line but fell on first attempt. The clipping jug is missing from the last bolt which is now definitely the crux of the route. There's a no hands rest at the second bolt if you're flexible and have good balance. Still my favourite route to date.
