Description:

Begins atop The Yellow Traverse, as an excellent second pitch option. Works up the verical rock to the right from the belay station. Work into a left-facing corner, then up and left past an old 2-bolt belay stance, continuing up and right past another bolt and an obvious large flake. Above, a bulge leads to a left-leaning ramp to a ledge belay with a bolt atop the face.

4 out of 5 stars Full on

Cool moves, shit gear in places, being on your game is advised. Serious. Diffraction to Metamorphosis is a great combination.

A great climb. The description given here is not very good.

wow! WOW! This is now tied with Super Slab as my favorite Eldo route, and I just can't say enough good things about it. Amazing position, completely "Eldo" bizarre baffling sequences, exciting runouts, tricky pro, linking discontinous features...the crux felt like solid 5.10 to me, too!
