Description:

Climbs the beautiful golden slab below Wings and Stings. The bolts are well spaced for a rap bolted route. Very sustained climbing on polished grinite and dime edges. No real good rests. Though rap bolted and all bolts, I wouldn't reccomend it to a "sport" climber.

Descent Options:

Rap the route.

Top-roped and the even harder route that goes up the slight corner to the right

3 out of 5 stars More heads up climbing.

Thin dime edges on polished granite. Did it just after Set the Controls. The bolts are a bit closer and the edges are a bit more positive. A good test route before jumping on Set the Controls. Still a bit heady I thought. Maybe I,m just a pussy.
