This excellent steep sport route is located to the right of Sideburn. Make a series of steep technical face moves (12c) to a large jug where you can get a rest. Above, power out the overhanging "wave-like" wall/roof (crux).
9 bolts; 2 bolt anchor.
The secret is out!
Hydra. Pardon the rope.

Please note that this formation gets lots of sun and is sheltered from the wind. It is best done on cooler days.

This 70 ft route is a power-endurance route, taking Leavitt just under two weeks to put together. There is 40 ft of the described 12c climbing enroute to the crux which involves a series of dynos. The aforementioned jug, allows one to shake out but not totally recover. Expect well over an hour approach for this beauty.

Route needs to be climbed with caution! Extremely loose jug around bolt number 6.
