Description 

This is a classic for the area and it is ON you from the start. The climbing is pretty thuggy, but there is just enough technical climbing to keep you focussing on your footwork as well. You will not be disappointed when you rope up for this one.

Venture left at bolt 5 to the neighboring anchors to climb the variation known as Atomic Rage (12d).


Location 

This is the 4th route from the left edge of the wall.


Protection 

7 bolts + anchors

An incredible set of moves. Sustained, sustained, sustained.
