Levi on Dry Ice


A bit of an odd route in terms of the bolt line, but quite good nonetheless. This line shares its start with Heathen, .11b, which goes to the right of the black streak. The climbing is initially quite casual and then gets rather pumpy through a bulge, with just a bit of desperation showing through after clearing the bulge.

Start directly below the dark waterstreak that doesn't reach to the ground. Climb up through four bolts that initially trend slightly right and then back left to the bulge at the bottom of the streak.

After the fifth bolt, head up and left (rather than right, which would put you on Heathen, .11b). After two more bolts, head rather sharply left through another two bolts to end up on the chains for The Emancipation of Dissonance.


Starts above a landing defined by the upper of two fence-post-and-lumber terraces; this line climbs up to a bulge that is at the bottom of a dark water streak. The easiest way to get there is to find the left-most bolted line in The Pipeline and then take the left of the two short trails directly across from that line.


9 bolts, chain anchors (shared with the line to the left).

Agreed that this is harder than Streak. The bolt spacing on this one will get your attention as well. Great climb.
