  • Description 

    This is a good route that tends toward the brutish style - big holds and good jams but sometimes with distance, obstacles, or awkward positions between. Start up the crack and pant your way to the top, passing an awkward crux just above the 1/2 way point. Belay from an anchor over left of the crack after the hard climbing is over.

    To descend, go up and over the summit point and to the left to the anchors of 'The Raven.'


    Location 

    This route is just slightly downhill of 'The Raven.' It is the chuncky-looking overhanging crack in the shallow left-facing corner sandwiched between the difficult bolted lines of 'Stars At Noon' on the left and 'Slave to the Rhythm' & 'Sinatra's World' on the right.


    Protection 

    A rack of nuts and cams to fist-sized.
