Description:

Route is on the far right side of the tall wall just south of White Wall. Moves up to a bulge and into some jugs. Continues straight up the face on the slab with fun footwork. Need a consensus to rate it..I think it's 10c-11a depending on your height for the crux and some reachy moves on the face. 3rd clip is a "don't fall" scenario due to the ledge below. Have an attentive belay...no slack. *Beta spoiler*--move high to a comfortable stance and right hand jug and clip easy. However, the crux move is well protected.

4 out of 5 stars heavenly in its brilliance

super fun if you are shorter than 6'! ...Your feet cut trying to match on a slopey ledge. Hope that flake stays attached down low.

4 out of 5 stars Troy Rocks

This is a well thought out super fun route. Third bolt is a tricky clip, but much needed for the crux. I would say 11a for sure. Enjoy this route.

4 out of 5 stars Rainy 1st ascent.

Turned out really good. The face is almost the best part of the climb along with the great crux move! Someone else do it and help rating it.
