Description 

Start from a flat rock that is perched nicely on the edge of the slope. Currently there is a 'sharpee rock-sign' at the base of the route that has the route name. Thin moves off the ground continue for about 55 feet on less than vertical stone with several cruxes. Find a good rest, then continue up the vertical wall on better holds for 25 feet to the anchor. A final hard sequence gaurds the anchor.
The movement is fantastic for the entire route length, and several hard sections require sharp focus all the way to the anchor.
The climb consists of mostly great rock until the last 10 feet where some crumbly stuff is encountered. The rock may be a bit sharp in spots.

  • As of Sept. 2013, there is a great sidepull pocket on the upper part of the route that is filled with Wasps. Avoiding this hold makes this section slightly harder, but was insignificant to the overall grade.

This route is overshadowed by the other classics in the area, but is well worth the effort, and deserves more traffic.


Location 

Between 'Astro Glide' and 'Trouble In The Forest' at Superratic!


Protection 

13? bolts to a 2 bolt sport anchor
