Description:

A bolted climb on a vertical orange wall. Retrobolting in 1991 focused the route from a 5.11A problem to a 5.11C face. Ascend Sheer Stress for 30', step left and then up the steep wall above. The bulge is the crux. Joins with Red Eye at a bolt anchor below the prominent offwidth.

5 out of 5 stars Critical Mass

Fun route from the ground through Thai Stick to this one. Climbs well with jug pulling in the middle and more thoughtful moves up a little higher.
