Climb the small crack left of Invitation. The crack moves left as the climb continues. Crux is near the top.


2 feet left of Invitation


Sparse. Looks good from the ground, but not so good up there. Ground fall potential.

Gear: small wires and cams, 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Having hung on some of this gear, I think this route can be well protected!
