Description:

Start on a ledge 30' off the ground on the right side of Faulty Tower. Climb up steep face and traverse left away from the ledge as the hillside drops away beneath you until, at the fourth bolt, you are just above a huge roof and about 100' off the ground!! One of the most exposed 5.10 sport climbs ever.

5 out of 5 stars Epic!

This is one of the steepest routes I've been on in the gorge. I failed to locate a crucial hold and the pump got me! Fantastic climb, will definitely go back for the redpoint!
