  • Description 

    This is the good and scary, sickle-shaped, left-angling crack in the middle of the Block Tower. Start as for Queer Bait on the highest ledge but continue straight up the crack where that route traverses right. This enjoyable hand crack soon turns into a scary pinched off undercling protected by RPs and small cams. When the crack ends, climb up to the first bolt then make crux moves left to a second bolt and on up and left to a fixed webbing anchor in a bushy crack. The traverse is a bit hairy as the roof you are traversing above has a sharp lip.

    You can continue up and right to link to Queer Bait or Dance of Chance. Go up and left to finish on Hurt Dance, or rappel 100 feet to the ground.


    Protection 

    RPs to a #3.
