Description:

This is a difficult climb starting with a tricky roof pull; halfway up the short face, foot and hand holds just disappear. If you miss the tiny undercling, too bad. If you get stuck, you can stay right, on the buttress beside Vegomatic. From the ledge continue up the big crack to the top.

4 out of 5 stars ?

Not sure if you traverse right to the overhang from the left , or traverse right to the arete then back to the left to the roof. I climbed to the left side of the roof ( still overhanging ) on some thin ( single pad ) flakes then over the top beside the small tree/bush to finish. I liked that way but would like to watch someone who knows. Really enjoyed this climb. TR from the top w/ 1 - 60m rope.

5 out of 5 stars Classic!

One of my favorite routes at Pilot. A powerful boulder start leads to thin face climbing to a super thin traverse to the right, just before the overhang. Pull a small roof and win! Finally did it clean! Tip: Traverse right before you actually get up to the roof.

5 out of 5 stars One of my faves!

This climb has such character. Big move for the start followed by thin thin thin face climbing to an awesome overhang with no jug to save you! Dont miss the undercling!

4 out of 5 stars Tought Little Guy!

Really enjoyed this route, the first crux on the overhang right before the ledge is tough!
