Very Moderate Splitter!

short but fun fingers with great feet, excellendt stances, this is one of the very few climbs that is classic, under 5.9 and free of spider in the NRG.

There is really no crux, just fun moderate locks with good rests up to the bolt anchor.


Obvious splitter in east amphitheatre.


Great first trad lead, climb takes great gear (easily placed).

Fun little warm up, that leads to a really fun 12 sport route "Mean old Mister Gravity". Make sure you got some buddies to give you a ground spot before your second pro because a lot of sharp boulders are scattered on the deck. Super short first pitch and unfortunately is often wet, but its good wholesome crack climbing either way you slice it.
