To the left of Harpoon, climb the thin cracks using the crack as well as holds on the face. Also easily toproped.


Small nuts for the crux. Some people prefer offset Aliens. I found the perfect spot for a #4 BD and then put a #5 right above that to protect the crux. Small cams protect the top.

GEAR BETA for anyone who wants it: #5 and #6 stopper (or 2 #5s), yellow TCU, and #1 camalot for the topout.

Many gear combos are possible; just keep in mind that the business is pretty close to the deck. Consider the zipper effect (i.e. place a cam low).

Great Climb!! Some tricky moves down low, but fun all the way through. Good pro, even though at first glance it looks pretty blank. A Must do!!
