Description 

Climb a gray streaked slab and through the roof to finish. Fun, technical climbing with a hard undercling crux at the third bolt is followed by steep, difficult climbing through the roof on mostly big holds. I broke a key foothold on the roof sequence (July 2011) which made the roof harder but shouldn't change the grade.


Location 

This is just left of Bovine Impact, in a secluded area that includes routes like Red Dawn and Bloody Corner. It's a few minutes walk from the Ruckman Cave, be sure to stay low on the trail, which is often heavily vegetated, and avoid the steep, nasty, sometimes muddy hill climb.


Protection 

6 bolts and anchor.
