a bolt (or two) has been added since Chris L. tried the second ascent (see photos).

A challenging and balancy route. Can be top roped with a 70 meter rope

Which is the original finish? The guidebook doesn't show the bolt at the roof.

It seems quite contrived to avoid the comatose roof pull.

The guidebook shows the original finish moving left to the Comatose roof after the thin face climbing. However the addition of the bolt over the roof makes for a bouldery crux that's well protected. Bring a few smaller cams for protection after pulling the roof (crux). This is an awesome climb and highly recommended!

Hi, everybody! This is The Pilsner Prophet! That's me getting my cast signed by Sean's wife, Heather. I didn't think that route rated an "R", but that was a long time ago. (It was kind of a freak accident when I broke my leg.) I haven't climbed anything in about 20 years. I came out to New Mexico in '96, and hadn't climbed much for a year or two before that. But I just might start again. Anybody mind belaying me while I top rope a 5.1?
