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.
