Description:

30m* This is the only bolted line at the 35b marker**. Start in the corner and follow the bolts through the face up to then over a small overhanging section to the anchors.

*My rope (60m) hit the halfway mark when I hit the anchors.

** A Sport Climbers Guide to Ontario (1997) lists the route as 8m left of the 35b marker, whereas The Escarpment: A Climbers Guide (1991) lists it just left of (pretty much at) the 35b marker.

Ummm.... jeez, I have no endurance. Not an overly technical 12, but it's long and I was burned out at the top.

One of the most fun 12's at Nemo, with an excellent roof problem. Thank god the FA bolted it so we all don't have to lead the strenuous roof crack on gear... Although.... new project...
