Description:

If you are looking for a full value pitch than look no further. Clocking in at a little over 160' long this route will certainly get your undivided attention. Start at the left end of The Sting Ledge. Make easy unprotected face moves for 15' to a discontinous crack system. Unique stemming will get you past the first pin. Continue to stem and follow amazing slashes to another pin ( pin is not good) . Head up and right past pin to a left facing flake for 8' to a bolt. Climb past bolt to another. Than make a hard traverse left to a small right facing flaring corner crack for another 8' to the bolted rappel anchor. Phew!

5 out of 5 stars Cooney Norton

One of the best routes I've done in a while, soooooo much better than it looks from below. Every move is interesting, well protected but with a heady feel. Went straight at the last bolt (crux) instead of making Houdini moves left into the (wet?) corner. I took a rack to 2", dumped just about everything on it. There was some fixed nuts at the beginning of the mossy slashes that trend up and right, it's gone now.
