Shared start with Grendal, and head straight up after the fourth bolt. Things remain easy until around the seventh bolt, where the angle steepens, and the holds shrink a bit. Perservere and continue to the top, heading right slightly to clip the chains. This line feels more natural than the two adjacent lines "Grendel" and "Straight on 'Til Morning".

Might be a little soft for the Guidebook grade of 12b.


Shares Start with Grendel, and heads straight up after the fourth bolt. Second route from the far left side of the tower, between "Technowitch" and "Once upon a Time".

FA: Matt Samet, Lee Sheftel. Lee loaned me his drill, some half-inch bolts, and helped consult on how to stay into the wall and drill, as I'd not yet learned that yet! Hint: it involved a hook.
