Outrageous and sustained climbing. Takes good pro all the way up, but you have to be sneaky with your placements, particularly near the bottom.


The obvious overhanging crack near the downstream end of the wall. Twenty feet right of the big chimney.


Nuts and doubles up to #2s. Anchors. There is currently a fixed nut at the bottom.

An interesting combination of jams, face holds and laybacking. You can't just throw pro in anywhere you have certain spots that it needs to go. There are currently 2 fixed nuts at the start, one just above the roof and then next a little higher.
