Just to the right of Ramer, this route is a bit more typical of Middle Cathedral routes but is definitely not one of the more serious or runnout routes. The crux sections are well protected with a little space between pro in the easier sections. Super clean and high quality rock, this route is definately worth doing if in the area. Not a huge step up from Ramer but much less sustained.

Descent Options:

Rappel or lower with a 60m rope.

3 out of 5 stars Good

A pretty decent route. The crux felt harder than any single move on Ramer and is decently protected but there is some distance between bolts that is sure to keep you on your toes. The cruxes are pretty short and most of the distance above the pro is gained via easier (5.8 or lower) climbing. Bring a (yellow alien or yellow C3) cam for between the second and third bolts, you'll be glad you did.
