This route S-curves up the wall passing thru three separate overhangs to a bold and committing move onto an exposed arete. Delicate climbing on the arete leads to larger holds and the anchor above.


Begins 12' to the right of The Becky Route


13 bolts with a 2-bolt mussy hook anchor. Lower off with a 60m.

Great new climb, the name says it all! Cruxes are technical, the climbing pretty sustained, and it's long. The arete move high up is a mind bender! Crux difficulty may be somewhat height dependent. Because the hard moves are technical and improbable I think the redpoint rating is 11b and the onsight maybe a tick harder.

Will probably be harder for shorter people. I think a key hold has broken at the arete move which makes the climb a little more dynamic. Overall, the holds are a little awkward in spots, but still well worth doing.
