4 out of 5 stars First Ascent

I did this route during a 5-day desert visit in 1985 with Wild Bill. We named it "Bad Rad Duality". It starts just around the corner to the left on the Supercrack face. There were two 2'x2'x3' blocks wedged in the crack about 40' up. It was scary climbing past and then trundling them on the first ascent. The original belay was a bolt and old Teton. Someday, we'll get back there and send that triangle roof and make a second pitch. We rated it 5.10+ to be sure it wasn't downrated. It seems .11a/b lately.
