This is a good line with good rock. It could use a good brushing for aesthetics, but the holds you use are already clean and it takes pretty good gear. This is more of a stemming affair than a crack climb, after all. If you do climb it, spare a moment to brush it as well... it will only improve.


This route is in the narrow corner just left of Fogline and goes up that corner to a ledge. At the ledge, move over right to the anchors on Fogline and lower off on a 70m rope. A 60m can be made to work... with caution.


A single rack from tips to 3" including cams and nuts.
