Description 

This is an awesome route to climb. It ascends two parallel cracks up a slightly overhanging face. Liebacks, positive edges, and even a jam or two will get you to the top. Fairly sustained, but manageable, this route is very featured and facilitates many possible sequences. The crux is protected with a bomb Number 3 C4 or equivalent in the obvious gap between the 4th and 5th bolts. I have heard, however, that the crux fall is long but clean if the cam is not placed.


Location 

Directly left of the MD route


Protection 

8 bolts and a blue C4 or equivalent
