Another fantastic stamina-test with a debilitating reach near the top - shorties beware.

This is an excellent route with steep and powerful technical climbing. There is a big reach / dyno near the top. However, it has been done by strong people less than 6' though the grade goes up to 7c+ for them.

There are three methods to the crux - one of which is a long reach which can frustrate shorties with endless slapping. However there are two alternatives that are perfectly static for the shorter climber but harder.

"Endless Slapping" now that would be a good route name!
Totally agree Jimbo. Possible for those without a long reach, but a harder sequence, 7c+ overall.

I found this route far more engaging and enjoyable than Detonator. Found Detonator was more about the fingers and Illusions was more about the feet.
