This route starts as Uncertainty Principle, but traverses left towards a bolt. From here it heads up to finish the same. Not often done.


TR, bolts

In my opinion, even better than Uncertainty Principle. The traverse at the start is hard, and it doesn't let up much after that. Great climbing on great rock.

The proper spelling of the route name is "Kurtains"
