The crack in the center of the face.


Climb the splitter up the center of the face, passing a wide section and a small roof.


Located at the far left end of the main wall.

Single rap from bolts.


Doubles from .75-3", with a single #4 and #5.

No need for big cams. Eats up 2" cams at the start and maybe a number 4 Camalot up high.
Punchy and kinda steep, with the start being cruxy if you have big hands.
The crack is sorta dirty in places and has some teeth.

There is NO anchor on top. I moved to the chains down and left from the top out. There are some loose blocks on the top of the crack so set a directional down low in the crack for the follower.
