Description:

This route takes just about the most straight line possible up the Bastille. Incredible. It is a combination of the first pitch of Wide Country (11a), the third pitch of X-M (10c), and Outerspace (10c).

Great route. I led the first pitch, which was hard and scary for me, but fortunately never too much of either at exactly the same time, or something like that.

The one flaw of this route, on the first half anway, is that the Bastille Crack sits anywhere from 10-30 feet to your left, mocking your foolish decision to deliberately commit yourself to scary runouts and 5.11 face moves when you could be jamming a nice well-protected 5.8 hand crack!
