Description 

Balancy moves on edges and sidepulls lead up to a strenuous roof with big, oddly-cambered holds and poor feet. Fight the pump through the steepness to large holds up top, and then a reachy clip at the chains.


Location 

Near the left side of the middle section of the wall that is dominated by the huge roof.

Find a trough/corner with bolted line up it. That line is Foreplay. The bolted line immediately right is The Beckoning Call. At the time of this writing there is a long permadraw on the 3rd bolt.


Protection 

5 bolts to chain anchors.

Fun route with multiple options at the 3rd bolt crux. The fixed anchors are very reachy.

Clipping the chains, quite a reach.

A fun and soft af 12a, hard moves at the 3ard bolt and giant jugs to the top. i'm 5.8 and had no trouble clipping the anchors, grab the jug on the left and stretch.

Good first American Fork 12a; moves can be finessed once you learn the beta. Clipping the anchors is the upper crux.
