Left slanting offwidth to start, then just above a bolt, make the scary traverse out right to the arete past some huge knobs. Extra wild if manteling huge knobs is not your thing. Then steep climbing up a thin crack until the anchor at a slung block, before that same crack widens to the top. Very unique and varied climb. Although not runout, you need to have nerve to lead this comfortably.

Descent Options:

Two ropes to get to the ground from the slung block rappel anchor. Also possible to rap from there to ground with one 70 m rope. Also possible to rap with one 60 or 50 m rope to the rap anchor atop Burst of Brilliance first, then another rap to the gro

4 out of 5 stars Wow!

Long single pitch, well worth it. The crack to face transition puts your mind in an interesting place.

4 out of 5 stars Knobs

The enormous knobs are awesome for problem solving! I got pretty pumped on this route due to me taking a while to figure out how to get past the crux. Great route altogether though and pretty perfect for the grade!
