Description 

Vertical to very slightly overhanging.A few crack moves at the beginning, then out onto a very crimpy face. Dont get sucked out right. Tough move to a flake on the left when the face starts to get blank. Cool moves on the flake to the anchors. One of the best routes of its grade at the red, in my opinion.


Location 

50 feet right of doppler effect. Bolted seam.


Protection 

7 Bolts plus anchors. 9 quickdraws.

As of 11/11/11, top anchors were unwelded cold shuts, and some of the bolts were showing rust. Nothing terrible at this point, but probably a good candidate for a little rehab work.

Amazing line - definitely deserving of classic status. Very defined crux with two very distinct ways to do it. Burly, layback "trad-esque" finish. Redpoint on 2nd go.

Easier for those with a positive ape index or for those not vertically challenged.

Great line that gets trickier towards the top.

Enjoy!

This is probably my favorite route ever. A classic Porter line.
