Description 

Start off on top of a rock and reach up to set some small pro. Use features and ledges until you can get high enough to sink fingers in the upward tapering crack (crux). Climb thin fingers to ring locks and all the way up to cupped hands in the lighting bolt crack. Follow crack system until it tapers off, and lieback the shallow corner until there is a ledge for a good foot, then reach to your right to sink into another crack system that also has a good ledge. Climb up and belay at a ledge from two baby angles 150'. Climb past a rotten section of rock to splitter corner that starts out at four inches. Keep plugging up as it goes down to cupped hands, hands, fingers. Belay from two Metolius Rap Hangers. Two 60m ropes, two raps.
