According to the grey Dick guide to the Trapps, this goes at 5.7 as a trad climb. While I wished I had a nice #4 above me, I was very glad that I wasnít wearing my steel skirt. I found this problem considerably more difficult than Keyhole Left and Keyhole Right, which Dick rates as 5.9 and 5.9+. Climb the 4í wide off-width crack to the horizontal 15 feet up and traverse off left or drop. Use the chock stone, a chicken wing, a foot jam or levitation to get to the top and remember itís only 5.7.
You canít miss it. The offwidth just left of the small tree growing at the base of the Keyhole wall. (See Beta Photo)
Spotter, hope that your leg comes out of the crack if you come off.
