A ground up aid innovation route requiring very unusual tactics such as lifting rocks out of the crack and placing gear in the crack and then putting the rock back to keep the gear in place. Hero slinging small horns, extreme shallow cam pin placements. Constant ground fall potential after the Bombay corner start. Was a fantastic aid climb with the best gear left as anchors for the courageous free climber. Didn't happen that way. The crack is directly left and on the route called 'Restless Native' and isn't recommended to be repeated this way again on aid. The bolts interfere with the severity and the severity might interfere with the free climbing holds. Historical beta.


Same location as 'Restless Native'


Stoppers, assorted size pins, cams, slings, etriers were used and fixed. All removed.
