Easier climbing for the first four bolts or so, to the regular First Buttress sit-down rest. From here on it gets harder, with several tough boulder problems going over little roofs, separated by good rests. The very top goes into a hanging dihedral.


Right of Push/Boomerang, left of Eye of Mordor.

This is a really quality route minus the two no hands resting ledges. Things really get interesting as you race through the final crimpy face section in to the crux dihedral. The moves in the dihedral are way better than the dihedral moves on "Boomerang" or "Eye of Mordor." A tricky knee bar greatly reduces the difficulty of the dihedral. This is my new pick for best 5.13 on the wall.
