Description:

Moving Left from Shattered Illusions, just around the arete a line of bolts starts up a beautiful wall from a flaky beginning. (At least one person has been injured in a fall from above the first bolt, and the landing is a set of steps and a large boulder, so stick clipping is an option.)

Tom Cecil, the man who bolted and lead this route, recalls:"Darrel insisted I come check it out saying he had a line he wanted me to do-a line he had spied years earlier and had wanted to do---he and I were busy at way better crags--when we got there there were bolts everywhere (remember this was early 90's??) almost all with a little tag (indicating this route --all 5 or 6 were being "developed" ) the route being described was not marked in any way--it was an obvious line and we were surprised it had not been done--I lead it ground up..." This is probably the crown jewel of the crag. Nice job, Tom.

Descent Options:

Lower or rap
