Description 

This is a very fun line that lies on the SW and S faces of Rockfellow. The climb has good rock and interesting climbing, particularly on the first two pitches.

Pitch 1 (130', 5.10+): Climb the thin crack protected by bolts and gear. Ends at a two bolt anchor next to a right-leaning ramp.

Pitch 2 (120', 5.10): Go up the right leaning ramp, then climb straight up a water streak with chickeheads. Bear right following bolts to a two bolt hanging belay.

Pitch 3 (85', easy 5th class): From the hanging belay move directly right to a flat platform, then head slightly downhill and slightly right for about 30'. Clip a bolt and make exposed moves along a ledge for another 30' or so. A two bolt anchor will be on the main dome up and to your left.

Pitch 4 (5.11-, 140'): Follow bolts up and left. Work through the crux and continue up on easier ground to a two bolt anchor.

Pitch 5 (5.10, 75'): Follow bolts up to a two bolt anchor.

Pitch 6 (5.10, 85'): Climb bolts on the face to your left to the top.

Descent:

We descended by working our way north across the top about 75'. When you reach the end of this feature you will have to rap; a three piece gear anchor is here. Rap about 40' to a nice stance at the top of Sensory Desuetude. Walk from here to the Abracadaver descent.

Location 

Starts at a thin crack on the left at the south exit of the Inner Passage.

Protection 

Mostly bolts. Stoppers and Singles to #3 Camalot is plenty.
