Description 

This is a great one pitch variation to finish off Sooberb or other nearby routes. About 25 feet to the right of the crux roof on Sooberb, there are two crack lines. The left one is Erickson's.

Pull on jugs to a thin hand jam at the lip. Fire in a #1 Camalot and deadpoint for solid edges above the roof. Moderate climbing leads up and right. Large cams (2-3 inch) are useful for the anchor.

To descend, scramble down some exposed 4th class rock to the starting ledge.


Location 

Located directly above the top rap bolts on Sooberb.


Protection 

Gear to 3".
