This is (in my opinion) a pretty good route. The moves are somewhat sustained, but it's the protection scares most people away - thus it is not so popular. The crux section comes about half way up and is both psychological (run out) and physical. Hitting the small ledge where the route starts is possible depending upon where you fall in the 5.11 section. The crack has some pocket type features that are cool. I would suggest practicing this a few times on TR first. And it's one of the first routes to dry out usually.

Great when linked after P1 of Airation. Or if you're really looking to spice things up you can do Stage Fright first.


Begin a few feet above and left on the top of Airation's first pitch. You can setup a TR from the pine tree above.


Small nuts and cams. Place em where you can - easier said than done as most important hand holds are the only places where you can protect.
