The only route on the true north side of the Loaf. Start on a triangle crimp on the left and slap a round sloaper on the right. Make a balancy high step up and maintain control until you can slap the top edge and mantle over. This is an easy route to spot. All the holds are mysteriously devoid of lichen and it starts where the south tip of Monk rock meets the Loaf.

4 out of 5 stars Balancy

Been eyeballing this one for a while. Never heard of anyone else doing it. Seen a few really good climbers try. Tried several times before over the past few years. Really delicate moves on thin feet. Finally sent it, (drunk in the dark W/out a pad) ironic I thought.
