One of the four classic "E" routes from Tom Herbert, this Gorge classic takes an amazing line out a substantial roof on the left side of the Dilithium Crystal formation.

A vertical face quickly gains the imposing roof (which is much easier than appearances suggest) which is rife with positive holds albeit a bit strenuous. The crux lies just above the lip as you struggle to get established on the slab above; once over it's a matter of holding it together to the anchors.


10 bolts, anchors

Amazing route. As you pull over the roof, imagine John Bachar soloing, in hot pink lycra shorts that make hims ass look big.

This is 12b all day, any day, and a harder red-point than Mind Meld just down the wall to the climber's right.
