  • Description 

    Climb halfway up the low angle slab-ramp and step across to the featured vertical face with good gear and a high bolt. Achieve the ledge and step right to a small left facing corner capped by a left leaning, overhanging hand crack. Pull the bulge and work back left to a shallow left facing corner/flake with a bolt. Crank the roof crux past another bolt to a two bolt anchor.


    Begin just uphill from the large ledge below “Boulder Problem in the Sky.”


    Draws and cams to 3"; 70m rope recommended

    I climbed the route ground up first on aid but never freed it on lead. the falls were punishing! Andrew Mcdowell moved the crux bolt and placed it under the roof for a better fall. He then made quick work of it sending it with no hesitation! Very sweet climb. My hats off to the next generation it has been fun for an old fart like me to pass the torch to such talent!
