Description 

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.


Location 

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.

Protection 

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.
