Description:© (nmonteith)

This ground-up effort felt all the more intrepid for being established in single-digit temperatures with no fewer than three hailstorms on the way. It's the best moderate route down this end of the wall.

Start: Start 2m R of 'Tokyo Rose' (Tokyo Connection), and 2m L of 'Sordid Orchids', on the elevated ledge.

  1. 25m (21) Thin orange corner then diagonally up L with feet dropping into TR for a move or two. Steeply over bulge and up the short orange flake on the R to gain slab. SHB below white bulge.

  2. 15m (20) Move R over white bulge to ledge. Leftward arcing thin orange corner to the intermittent headwall crack 4m R of 'Atomic' Tadpole's finish.
