Me inching my way up the slab of Hagfish.

Description 

On the left side of the main wall sits this tricky route. Bolted by Nathan Renner, it starts up the left angling crack/flake before grabbing a couple of glue-reinforced edges on the face. From these edges, go straight up the slab using tricky and insecure sequences. The bulge at the top has great moves that could be vicious to the pumped climber.

Protection 

7 bolts, closed cold shut anchors.

Not sure why this is only getting three stars. I found it to be a great route. Committing pulls going into and through the roof w/ stellar climbing to the anchors, come to think of it, pretty much the entire route will keep you thinking. Getting to the roof is way techy on just under verticle rock. Good stuff! Blake and I did this in the rain once, pulling the roof was freaking sketchy.
