The crux is low. Climb a few steep moves and then run the route out to a ledge up and left. This ledge is the same ledge where Thin Red Line tops out.

Admin: A more detailed description coutesy of Ian Harris: Start in a corner with a small chimney on your right. Climb toward a tree on a higher ledge and then past two pitons, trending left. Be sure to go left of the prominent inverted staircase as this is a different route. Once on easier ground, go around the pinnacle on your right and you will find a nice belay ledge. Continue up and right and you will find the chain anchor.

Rock quality on this route is not very good and it is harder than 5.7, I think 5.8+. Rock quality increases and difficulty decreases as one climbs higher.

Also, this could probably be done in one pitch to the anchors using a 70 meter rope and good rope drag management, but we broke it up using a 60 meter rope.


This is the leftmost route on Southern Comfort Wall. Either walk off north (see In the Pocket) or perhaps rap from Thin Red Line anchors.


There is a fixed Lost Arrow at the start. Light trad rack.

The rock quality of this route is okay, but not great. It's a good route to get to the anchors if you want to top-rope some of the harder routes to the right.
