Description 

Moves up a short crack/corner then right to a bolt then back left to shallow corner. Powerful moves get you past the bolt. An old school run out gets you to the ledge and a belay. from here move right and turn the roof. Modern cams will make this a bit safer or a .5 tricam.


Location 

Clmbs the west face of the Sphinx and moves right at the horizontal to a bolt at a bulge.


Protection 

Light rack up to 3 camalot.

Pulling the bulge after the bolt is brutal. 5.11 old, old school, when hardmen were hardmen.
