From the beginning this route means business! Boulder your way up to the first bolt with power moves and slick feet. After that it becomes a vertical balancing act with a little yoga thrown in! Use pockets, crimps, tuffa side pulls and feet that appear just as you need them. As the pump begins to build the wall begins to bulge into a slight overhang with pockets that challenge you figuring out how to use them.
The route is up and right from the lower climbing wall. The jungle begins to clear and open up a little bit. You will notice a helmet like bulge about 20 feet off the deck. 10 feet to the right has a giant tuffa bulge and 50 feet right is the start of a giant roof (5feet).
The route is well protected with bolts (I brought ten draws)and has a bolted anchor station.

The starting moves are very height dependent. It can be more straight forward for tall people but there are options for us shorter types as well. The movement on this route is great! It feel very fluid and there are a variety of holds so each person can figure out their own best way to climb this route. It is sustained climbing with only a few marginal rests. It builds until you are tired and you find the true crux right near the end of the climb.
