Description 

Watch the start, crux down low, delicate feet and powerful Gaston off the ground. Solid rock with some intricate slab moves through the middle section. Steeper cracks towards the top to a fun, exposed finish.


Location 

First bolted line on the right hand side of the west face.


Protection 

Five bolts and a few small cams for the top section. Two bolt anchor. Difficult to clean while lowering, second should clean on the way up.

Hi, Paul Humphrey here. I bolted this route. The name is actually "Top of the World, Ma!" from an old movie.

Went back and climbed it recently. That start's not 5.9. Who rated that anyway. (oh, I did.) The starting moves are tougher than that, though the rest of the route is cake.
