A great hard route with some desperate body tension intensive moves. Powerful and tricky, the crux is hard to read.


The second bolted route you come to while hiking up the canyon on the South side. Located between "Dark Rose" and "The Revelation".


4 bolts + 2 bolt/chain anchor.

The 1st bolt (crux) isn't exactly inspiring.
Hard to read is a major understatement, that things is ridiculously hard.
