Three Doubles.

Description 

Among the best 5.11s at the GBN, this line climbs a beautiful swath of highly pocketed stone. With excellent movement and bomber stone, this would be a 4-star line if it were a bit longer.

Sinker 2-finger pockets and a few optional monos lead up and left to a recessed dihedral. Work up this feature to worsening holds and the crux reach moving past the perfectly located third bolt. Sharp crimps and hard-to-see pockets move over the small roof to the anchor.


Location 

Around the arete from Delilah, climbing a slightly overhanging, west-facing, gray & black panel.


Protection 

4 bolts to 2 BA (shared w/ Delilah).
