Description:

A classic Kurt Smith route being one of the best routes in the canyon with a overhanging dihedral being the crux. When cleaning the route thread the rope up through the coldsut on the arete and then through the anchor so your rope doesn't grind on the corner. Heard a hold near the top recently broke, but the route still goes.

freakin hard, can do all the moves but connecting them all together would be a different story. quit one bolt from the anchors though so not a true ascent.
