Start just to the right of Empor, to the right of the big boulder. It has solid finger jams with marginal feet, but bomber gear take you to a juggy ledge/corner that seemed a little awkward. From here, continue up on the Northwest Corner route, or head a bit left to join Empor. You can place pro before starting by standing on the boulder to the right of the crack. This might prevent a nasty trip into the cave below.


Protects well with smaller stoppers or TCUs.

Good climb with a one move crux. Solid pro. Great 1st 5.10a for an aspiring 5.10 leader. Can't really get hurt falling if pro set well.

Is the fixed, silver TCU still there?

I followed this one today. Fun crux move, but my foot slipped and I fell from about 10 feet up. With rope stretch I hit the ground, although it was cushioned quite a bit. Fired right back up and enjoyed a great climb the rest of the way to the top. Moving out right around the corner near the top was really nice.
