Climb the first 20 feet of the Dihedral for Death of a Monarch with long slings on your hand-sized cams. Traverse right on bolts and over two distinct roofs with really fun featured granite climbing. Finish back left at the top anchors for Death of a Monarch.


Starts at the base of the final pitch of Death of a Monarch and moves right and up.


# 1,2,3 camalots, 4 bolts, long runners. Finish either left on Death of a Monarch's anchors or right at the top of White Lines. You can sling the tree by the anchor of DoM that is directly above the climb if you're setting up a TR.

Keep an eye out for a cool crystal pocket or two. This one isn't all that hard but its pretty dang fun. Direct start is in progress and will likely be .12a
