Description 

Break it Out is a somewhat discontinuous, mostly dihedral crack system that keeps throwing liebacks, some thin crack and even a bit of the offwidth at you to keep you honest. Honestly, it is a pretty awkward lead and a bit of a head sketch at times because the knobby rock here seems a bit brittle and placements therefore can seem slightly suspect.

Nonetheless, it is fairly good climbing that'll get you nice and warmed up.


Location 

On the far left side of North Star Walls, the crack system just right of the bolted slab arete, Diamond in the Rough.


Protection 

doubles from fingers to 3". One 4" piece rec'd. Chain anchors.

I know the crux is short and low on the route, but it might as well be called 10a.
