BETA PHOTO: Hesitation.
Scary. This was done ground up and onsight (all my highballs were except Forgotten Friend
), and it is unlikely this line has seen a second ascent.
Start at the lip, 3 feet off the ground, and make powerful moves up to an obvious mantle. Here most climbers will gracefully bow out...hence the name. Once done hesitating, climb just left of the arete to pockets and crimps and make a desperate mantle onto a holdless summit. A classic if you enjoy mind-control highballing.
The West Ridge Area. The line is 10 feet right of the obvious overhanging OW, Lisenby Roof.
Multiple spotters, multiple pads. If you peel off above the point of no return you'll hit the block visible in the photo.

Very committing if you want to top out, guaranteed to give you sweaty palms or some broken bones.
