Description:

Located just to the left of dust, in the middle of the roadside wall. Great new line for the narrows , it starts off with some fun 11 climbing in a scoop, to a rest on a shelf, it gets steep from here into the roof for 4 bolts to the chains. Bouldery pinches and crimps in the roof to a Stalone finish on some big jugs.

Descent Options:

rap or lower

4 out of 5 stars .

The crux might be making a couple of the clips. Still a good route.

Clean root. Amazing climb. Definitely give this climb a try if you head up to the narrows.

5 out of 5 stars New line at the narrows!

I never thought i would get to bolt a line like this up here, they dug the narrows out last season and widened the road takeing out the tree that was hideing this line, its one of the best that i have bolted.
