Description:

On the inset wall between chicken head city and bold fingers. A killer route with 4 distinct and hard cruxes. I'd shun the original death flake for the newer and harder (12c) direct line that goes straight to the roof from the first bolt. Prepare your self for hard climbing with the penalty of a good punt for coming off. One of the best routes at rumbling bald proper. If your not up for the lead you can set up a top rope by hiking up the gully between scream weaver and the project wall. A must do!

5 out of 5 stars So good!

Went with the direct on all but the initial onsight attempt. If you are serious about the onsight.... wait till a cool day. The slab up top was my crux until I had good temps. Great stone, exciting runouts and movement. Awesome.
