Starting in a corner with 2 hard to see bolts in between Positive Vibes and the Red Dihedral, this route is 8 pitches, 5 of them with 5.11 climbing, ending at the "Venturi" chimney. Watch the loose flake at the stemming part of the 7th pitch, that thing is way too noisy to trust fully.

Descent Options:

Rap with an 80 meter rope (it's possible to do it with a 70, but you'll do many more) or continue to the top and walk off.

5 out of 5 stars Yeah, A day trip to the Hulk!!

What the hell was I thinking,
fell following the 7th pitch at the reach and once on the crux 8th pitch, plus I had major rope management issues there, but an awesome route for those who like 5.11 climbing in an alpine setting.
