Description 

step up onto a slabby piece, pull up to the thin wire crack.....pull and grope through some awkward face holds to a bolt, pull up onto a slabby ledge and move onto the eggshell material, move up to a roof, pleasurable cranking through roof and up onto a small ledge to the finish headwall that is solid light gray sandstone. Great views, airy, not a terribly aesthetic climb when you look at it....but its long and has a lot going for it....high, steep, and scenic


Location 

Far end of the trail, past Wolf Wall, et al. The area with this climb and its neighbors is indicated by a tight collection of mixed routes on a tall section of cliff. Also, a little nook is formed by a free-standing rock island/pillar kind of thing that sits apart from the main cliff by 10-12 feet.

One walks past the low cave feature that is the home of the routes Evil Is and Jolly Roger, as well as walking by Golden Arch (long arching left-to-right handcrack in blonde rock). Just past these routes is where B-52 and others are located.

B-52 is the one on the left end beginning on moldy, gray rock and having an obvious thin-wire protectable crack early on. Look for the first bolt up high and left above the thin wire-accepting crack.


Protection 

mixed, light but well sorted rack
