This route is located on the east face of Easter Rock just left of Knappweed Herbacide
. Surrounded By Reality is the first route to pierce the big roof midway up the east face. Surprisingly, the big roof is not the crux, rather the A-frame below. The first part of the route is easy and still a bit dirty, but quickly improves as the rock gets steeper. Lurch up the sloper through the A-frame and get a good rest before the final big roof. The upper roof is not that bad, maybe 12a, but a bit awkward. I'm still not sure about the rating on the lower crux, maybe I missed a trick that would make it go easier. A 60m rope is definitely recommended for this route. A variation is in the works that will avoid the lower crux, but as of 8/5/02 it is not complete so avoid any tempting looking bolts to the left.

12c sounds right. I took the right branch at the roof since there was chalk on it . I hope this was the right way.

The right branch is the correct way to do this route, the center roof is still a project with the bottom part coming up from the left, still in progress.
