Description:

Don't be intimidated by the steep sections atop this route or its neighbor, End of Innocence. The technical business is below. Begin at the low ledge and flake and climb past some technical crimping, edging, sidepulling, and balancing to a really sweet jugfest. The top has some of the most outrageous features around.

Descent Options:

lower or rap. bolted anchor with large open shuts

A few hard moves down low lead to a great second half.
