Description:

Hard to believe this 5-star route wasn't in the database already! Start on the slab below the dihedral of Frictional Heat Experiment. Clip the first bolt above the roof from the slab, then traverse left into the dihedral. Climb the somewhat dirty crack until you gain the hand traverse horizontal. Jam the horizontal and clip the 2nd bolt. Traverse and move up onto the face. Climb the steep face directly up, following the right-most bolt line.

Descent Options:

Cold shuts
