Climb the wide crack in middle of black streak for about 40'. 1.5" crack in the back for pro and laybacking. Then up broken face and blocks to anchors. Fun unique climbing on surprisingly solid rock. Sometimes dirty.


The black section of rock that faces the road and big talus pile. Mariposa to the right and another short finger crack toprope to the left.


Full rack to 3"
