Description 

A few thin moves down low to gain the top of the block....and it's hands and big hands to the anchor. Some small loose blocks were removed at the start. The remaining blocks seem to be quite solid. There is a small ledge about half way up that still has some rocks chillin' on it.


Location 

The route is approx. 100 yards to the left of Excuse Station. Look for the nice looking corner. It has a few wedged blocks at the start of it. Where the hand crack ends there is a seam that continues through some wavy roofs, the anchor is located to the left of the crack at this point. There is a plaque at the base.


Protection 

Gear is #.5 camalot to #3 camalot, mostly #2's and #3's. The anchors are located to the left of the crack where it ends. The chains are visible from the ground (start).
