BETA PHOTO: This is the line known as Grunt

Description 

A good obtuse corner with a jamcrack. Perhaps the name comes from the precept that if you have a lack of jamming skills, there is always the layback, or perhaps for a awkward slot that must be passed just before the wide section up top.

For the best line, or a second pitch, step left on awkward moves from the first good ledge and join the route "Hot Licks and Rhetoric" up the orange corner just left.


Location 

From the approach trail, go left of the first rock you intercept, a huge free-standing spire. Just left of this you will see a mixed (some bolts) route on the vertical flat face of a rounded arete. This face is the route "Till The Cows Come Home." Just left of that route there is a crack in a huge, left-facing corner with a small roof above mid-height and a wide crack above that. This is the route "Grunt."


Protection 

A standard rack with a wide piece to finish the top.
