Crack leads to a strenuous digedral, then move left around the arete and climb a series of technical moves through bulges. Lower off. Might be my favorite sport climb, amazingly beautiful and exposed movement.
Prominent crack system on middle buttress. Just left of Northern Pike.
15 bolts. Anchors at top.

cool climb for sure. all of the crack and dihedral is lower angle and pretty easy if you use the feet available. then find your way through the steepness and to the anchors. have fun!

Ok well... Maybe I wasn't having an "on" day, but the top moves of this were pretty awkward and hard for 11c. An interesting route for sure, but given my experience I can't justify 11c or 4 stars. It is bolted very well, just....awkward.

It's awesome. Just awesome. One of the best lines in the gorge.

This is hands-down the BEST climb in the gorge. Exposure, problem solving, wild stemming, rad tubing and chimneying, a thought provoking ending, and kinda eerie. What a line! Not one to miss. This is a trad climbers JAM! SOOO FUN
