Description 

This one is sweet! Start up the bolts just right of the obvious crack. The line traverses right and into the crux sequence - which involves a sweet pinch and a sloppy topout. Funky climbing continues to the anchors. My favorite at Blacktail. Great rock, good holds, and sweet moves.

Location 

On the upper wall, start up the bolt line just right of the obvious crack system. The trail deposits you right at this route.

Protection 

Bolts to anchor.

Best 11- at blacktail, but don't tell anyone because its the only one that isn't at all polished. Far more enjoyable than Inconceivable on lower BTB. Sustained technical movement through lower section; sequency crux clipping bolt and getting above ledge. Nice 5.10 moves above ledge to finish. Must do.
