A sunny April morning with Jon Scoville.


Just left of the large boulder, is a crack that requires stemming down low and jams the rest of the way. The protection is there and the moves are not too bad.


2 bolts are at the top for anchors. Getting to the anchors requires a lead of some sort. If one doesn't feel like leading a trad route, one can lead Lip Service.

Standard rack would suffice for the lead. It takes nuts very well.

Very fun route. For extra fun, do the steep start w/o stemming off the boulder. Makes it more sustained and pumpy.

One of the best leads on the wall, with sustained fun movement on mostly finger cracks. Great warmup for Aquaduck!
