This is a stunning line. To reach the Magic Carpet Ride, float a little ways up a 5.7 slab and clip the first bolt. Turn a corner and continue on steepening ground (5.11) until you reach vertical and your final, somewhat restful position. From here, a very cryptic and powerful move sequence begins and does not let up (not even really to clip) until you exit the incredible Magic Carpet panel. Some exotic and uncharacteristic granite grips bless this powerful climb. Finish on the same chain anchors as 'Cloak and Dagger'.


This is on the left side of the steep alcove. The route begins on a slab with a high first bolt.


9 bolts and chains.

It came to my attention yesterday that a frustrated climber desperately searching for something more to hang on to or put a foot on might try to remove a few otherwise totally harmless, small shrubs in the crux of this climb. PLEASE refrain from removing these beautiful little plants that have found a home in this amazing wall. We can easily enjoy this stone simultaneously with these little shrubs. If the climb is so hard that you need additional holds, please climb on something else.
