I lead this just after it went up. It took me a few tries up and down to commit to the crux at the top. The fact that you are well over 20' out at the time might have had something to do with it...

It is a great route for it's type but doesn't get lead much.

The photo overlay of the line and description above are wrong. Footnote is strictly a face climb and starts just left of Table of Contents.

My notes say we TR'd this in 2002. It looked too scary to climb straight up to the first bolt. On TR this section felt like at least 5.8+. Easy to get to the anchors by starting up Hermaphrodite and traversing over.

[edit:] I notice that adding a beta caused a new post to appear. Is this a bug?

All the bolts are new. This is a true 10.c slab climb. Crux is sustained after fourth bolt.
