This is a fun crack climb, it will take you through the sizes from hands on up. Use the crack for upward progress, but look around for your rests: opposition and friction are your friends. Towards the top, crank a handcrack through a small overhang (crux) to gain the lower angle terrain to the "top."

To descend, rock hop climber's right to find rap anchors.


From the ledge to the left of the approach gully, carefully step right on blocks to gain the well vegetated groove. The first few moves are a bushwhack, but it cleans up nicely after that.


Standard VW rack up to #4 C4, bigger gear if wide cracks make you queasy. There are places to put a #5 and #6 if you decide to carry them up.

This one is the first obvious line left of Labyrinth. Don't let the bushes at the start deter you, it's a fine climb! The view from the top is spectacular.

Great but stout climb. Needs a lot more traffic. The bushes add to the fun.
