  • Description 

    A route similar to Cannabis. This one is the left of the two routes on this block.

    5.6 seems a fair rating, as this route is no easier than Eclipse (5.6) and distinctly more technical (benefitting from a backstep here, a gaston there, etc.) than the adjacent 5.5 (which, like Eclipse, enjoys a few no-hands rests). While neither of these lower routes are particularly exciting climbs, the view from the anchors is the best at Breakneck. (And they're the only two that get consistent sun!)

    Location 

    #14 on topo

    Protection 

    2 bolts, anchors over the top.
