Great thin face route. Either bring a stick clip or, for full value, place a bomber nut or two below the crux face. 5.10 crack-ish climbing will bring you to the first bolt and the beginning of a very tenuous, powerful sequence. Crimp your way past two more bolts to the anchor.


Between Suck My Dope and Morphine Endorphin.


3 bolts, 2-bolt anchor. Either place good gear below the first bolt or figure out some way to stick clip that first bolt, because it's up there.

Wow, what a great route. I hadn't thought of it in years and then I saw this comment. I had a great time working this thing out.
