This route is the obvious crack line right of Let it Rock. Follow the left angling ramp past a few trees until the line heads up and right on the face. At the upper ramp, either climb up to the ridge line, or belay while standing on the ramp. The line is obvious from the ground as well as on Rossiter's topo in his new guide.

The view from the ridge is spectuacular: The Devil's Thumb, The Maiden, Jamcrack Spire and Tower of the Moon are all below.

This route's name came from its proximity to Let it Rock, and especially from the community service trundling we did. I gave it one star because of its lack of length and lack of consistent difficulty. Nevertheless, the position and pleasant climbing make this worthwhile if you are in the area.


Requires a few nuts and a few hand size cams. A few larger cams are handy for the belay on the ridge.

The climbing is decent, but the approach to the face/crack is AWFUL. Not worth it in my opinion, but I rated the route based on the actual climb, not the 100ft approach scramble.
