This is a sweet route. One of the better hard pitches in the potrero. It looks completely impossible from the ground but there are decent holds the whole way. Great rock, amazing face climbing on positive pockets and crimps. The route would go at 12+ if it wasn't for the vicious boulder problem mid way. Think tiny pockets and a very high foot. I think it climbs better than weeping Jesus but not nearly as popular.

My favorite route that I came across while I was there. Beautiful movement despite tons of glue through and after the crux. One of the few cruxes where being short may help, ( im 5.8 ). Also this route can be linked and lowered with a 70m rope and 18 to 20 draws if memory serves correctly.
