It is harder than it looks. There are some thin edges at the top before the anchors. Start just left of the corner start of Stinger. You can pass the low bolt to reach a jug at the second clip. Continue up the scoop keeping right of the crack and climb gently overhanging face to the finish.


It is the second to last route from the right side of the Vault (just left of Stinger).


6 bolts.

This route is a bit squeezed to keep at the 11d/12a grade, but it has a good hard finish.

Pretty fun and technical! It's a 12a in D'Antonio's guidebook, the top is the crux for sure.

I really like this thing, and the crux is actually pretty solid. It is hard from the last horizontal all the way to anchors. Not exactly the one move wonder that it has a reputation as.
