Same start as False Alarm, but continues straight up instead of joining Hanging by a Thread. The top section is much more sustained than on False Alarm.


same start as False Alarm. just left of Hanging by a Thread, and right of Nostalgia

This is an excellent route. The crux is near the bottom and the remainder of the route is 12a-b, with a couple typical quarry style rests. Most of the people that I have talked to agree with the grade of 12d.

This, along with Hanging by a Thread, can easy be set up as a top rope by doing Nostalgia.
