Description:

#12 on the topo. Fairly sustained climbing up pockets and pinches. Starts right off the creek, so low water conditions are a must. In the opinion of some, the best route at Wheeler. Going straight up with a deadpoit to a sharp incut cobble, instead of veering left at the top perhaps adds a letter grade to the difficulty and is the more astetic option.

Great climb, project lead for about 20 mins! SUSTAINED. Small edgy holds, lots of balancing, very rewarding top-out, first leader fall, nothing hurt, almost upside down in harness!

climb fast through the bottom section, go for the deadpoint direct finish, possibly .11c
