Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Climb Stoic Calculus and continue up and right to a nice hand crack with good pockets, slightly overhung at the top. Though this route has been thoroughly cleaned small rocks may still come off until its been climbed more. Use caution as this is a popular area and there may be other groups below.


Seven more bolts to ring anchors. If you plan on being lowered to the ground from the upper anchors YOU WILL NEED A 70 METER ROPE. With a 60 meter rope you will need to lower back to the anchors of Stoic Calculus.

Nice job, I've wanted to bolt that route for years. I can't wait to get on it.

The name for this is really good. The upper crack area is emotional and its an unusual crack feature for the area with its bizarre geometry. Off width crack with all kinds of different holds and body positioning. The trickiest part being the feet. Have fun but be careful, its still getting cleaned up. We had some rock fall doing it.

VERY CHOSSY. As mentioned, this route has some fun, interesting crack/layback movement that you dont find in AF very often. I'd rate this climb higher if it didn't have so much loose rock. Wear a helmet on belay if you have it.

May 2013 - pretty clean now, though the crack is still painfully rough. Good thing it's a short crack! Awesome natural continuation of stoic calculus, and not bad if your crack technique is good

I'm not sure if something changed, but this route felt significantly harder than 10a or 10b to me. Possible something broke? I'm no crack climber, but the 11b/c around the corner felt a lot easier to me...
