Description:

Just to the left of Redrum, Climb a glue-reinforced pillar of rock then up over a small roof and lieback a series of left-facing flakes until able to cut right to shared anchors with Redrum. This route could be height dependent. 11a/10d. AS OF MARCH 2010 - This route has been significantly changed due to necessary rock removal. The start is the same, but the upper section is considerably more difficult. Balancy climbing leads to a dynamic move to the 6th bolt. Another bolt of thin climbing and the hard part is over. The grade has been proposed at 11c/d, but may be closer to 12a

Descent Options:

Lower/Rap

2 out of 5 stars Tough

Beginning. I've seen a couple of people nearly ground fall trying to clip third bolt.

3 out of 5 stars An easier 11a

I don't think this route is worthy of an 11a rating. Although as someone else said, it could be height dependent. Otherwise a very interesting route, with the right beta the crux becomes very easy. This is a good practice route for some liebacking on the flakes.

3 out of 5 stars Very fun

Low crux, got it second try, might be a little height dependant.
