Description:

Shares the same hard dihedral start as womb w/ a view then climbs right towards a small roof. Then traverse left on a slab section towards the arete. The guide books says it's possibly the best route in Clark Canyon w/ 5 stars. Super long, very fun, and exposed.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Route, a must-do at Clarks

This route is long and very sustained. Burly dihedral climbing leads to a technical traverse right out onto the face, pull through some technical face moves to the steep arete. Very happy to onsight this, there's opportunity's to botch the sequence pretty much throughout. Great route!

2 out of 5 stars Not

My cup of tea. The first pitch is for the trad climber in mind or someone with good stemming technique or hand jamming technique on slabby type of rock. Neither of which I have. The second part I was over with it. although the view from the anchors is pretty stellar.

5 out of 5 stars Tasty.

Crux depends on your taste: technical stemming down low, pumpier stuff up high. Fun the whole way.

5 out of 5 stars Best in Clark Canyon!

A solid 10d the whole way up. I found the crux to be the steep slopey arete towards the top, not the dihedral
