2nd pitch of sheer stress anchor
Climb the upper headwall of sheer stress. Crimps and hard lockoff's take you to the top.
Above sheer stress.
gear for sheer stress, bolts.

I just revisited this route and I can say that it is certainly one of the top ten Portland-area sport climbs. Maybe state?! Good holds on beautiful, solid, grippy rock- what more could you ask for?

The third bolt seemed oddly hard to clip for a shorter person (and I'm 5'9"). Not a big deal, but your waaaay past your last clip. Agree with the above; for the grade, there is no better route in the PDX area. Super clean falls, so it's a good one to push your limit!

This route is rad. Without a doubt the best thing I have climbed around Portland. Great movement and super aesthetic rock, this thing would be a classic anywhere. Seemed to be on the upper end of 5.11d and harder than Kashmir.

Yep, great route. Technical, exposed and captivating. It took a while to figure out an efficient way to move between the 3rd and 4th bolts but once unlocked the route felt easier than Kashmir.
