This is the farthest rightmost bolted route at Phat City. It is long and thought-provoking for the grade, ascending a a series of roofs and sharp edges with a sequence that initially appears devious.


9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. 1 or 2 runners may be useful to reduce rope drag, but be careful of sharp edges. One or two key bolts are placed in such a way to minimize risk of the rope being cut, at the expense of additional drag.

Fun climbing at the top of this route, except for the potential DEATH BLOCK near the top.... Be very careful what you step on if you decide to undercling right near the last bit of this climb, between the second to last and last bolt. Ropes run over and ON the block if you choose to top-rope....
