A sweet intimidating line


This sustained route climbs left to right around an intimidating arete. Thought provoking onsight that doesn't really back off for about 90% of the route. Flows nicely once you find all the crucial holds around the arete. Getting creative with heel and toe hooks will help you find a couple OK rests.


On the large obvious arete to the right of Hymalayback and Cranium Crack.


10 draws. It wouldn't be a bad idea to stick clip and extend the first draw.

This is an incredible climb! I'm not sure if it just suited me and my partner's climbing styles, but we both agreed it is definitely in the top 3 sport climbs either of us has ever done. Long, flowy, sustained, techy and super-exposed feeling. All the holds are just good enough. Would be a tricky onsight. WOW!!!

Probably the coolest climb I did on my first visit to Spearfish. This route ROCKS!! Amazing postion, movement, and Rock. Tricky to onsight due to the hidden nature of the holds.
