    Great warm up for Captain's crack. Fun Mantle mid-way.


    Follow trail at base go across big gully and this is the right most bookend with a well packed base.

    I've heard of this referred to as one of the (the right) "5.7 Corners". I feel as if this climb goes at about 5.7 and the protection is more than adequate. A really fun pitch.

    I found this climb to be a complete blast. The gear was solid (and I am pretty easily sketched out), the huge corner is awesome to look at and to climb, and the climbing is pretty varied... Couldn't ask for much more.

    One thing, someone might want to bring an extra piece of webbing/cord. The anchor looked solid but is aging.
