Description:

Middle route on this wall, starts with pulling a low roof. Up face to more overhang, more up and more overhang, to left to anchors. Some think it easier than "Devil", but most don't even try it. See ascent reports as "Herculean Task" incorrectly in Amphitheater section.

5 out of 5 stars Good Route

Got the redpoint the other day, using supplemental gear. Put a couple cams in the horizontal just before the face portion of this climb. Really fun on sport!

4 out of 5 stars Great Climb!

This climb was great! Fun start and pulling through the face moves was the best part. Don't slow down or the pump might catch up to you at the overhang near the top. The right anchor near the top doesn't appear to be in the best condition. I backed up the top rope to the trees past the top of the climb.
