BETA PHOTO: Infrared Heart - a rough idea of the line, plus wh...


Climbs the sheer-looking face right of the long crack/corner system. A lot of great climbing, but discontinuous in difficulty. The start is a little contrived, but the climb is worth the effort.

Scramble up to the first bolt, clip, then move left to the corner. Climb the corner, while clipping the second and third bolts on the face. Move up and past the third bolt, then move right onto the face using a matchable crimp, and a black foothold. Clip the fourth bolt, then move through the first crux, using some small holds and good technique. Some easier climbing will lead to the second, easier crux. After this you are rewarded with 30 feet of incredibly fun, steep jug hauling. Things get a little tricky again at the anchors, as you navigate through a large quartz band and some hidden incuts.


Just right of the big crack/corner system.


10 bolts and lower biners

Rad! Get on it! other than the weird start where you're not sure if you should feel bad for using holds on the 10 it gets sweet once you branch out
