The name means fear of deviation from the official doctrine. (sport being the doctrine at this wall) The first trad route at the Orifice Wall. Left leaning and overhanging chimney/offwidth to steep jug hauling. Looks like a nightmare but footholds on the face make it fun and worth doing if you like the wide stuff. It is a little runnout to the first cam but easy. At the top you move left and finish by clipping the last bolt of Flyer Starter.
Starts in the black stained chimney that is also the start of Eureka.
Two bolts and Camalots 1-#3 2-#4s 2-#5s 1 or 2-#6s. We used one six above the first bolt to move higher and place a 4 and a 5 then pulled the 6 in order to use it higher thus avoiding carrying two #6s

This is a fun route and the first mixed line at the Orifice wall. Nice work Aleix on the first ascent!
