Use both of these to jam and lieback your way up the right-angling crack. Grunt through a stopper crux up high. Crack climbing over bolts--fun stuff. I heard someone was trying to send it on gear.


The right angling, right-facing corner right of Whipstocking.


8 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

There is now an extension to this pitch that climbs the headwall above the end of the corner/flake (Knees and Toes 5.12b, FA Audrey Sniezek).

Definitely harder then it looks, but a real fun one nonetheless! Lots of theories on how to work the top but to each his own when you get there!!
