BETA PHOTO: Lips Like Sugar, 5.10


An excellent route up the sunny southwestern corner of the formation. It starts in a shallow corner with a thin crack (5.9ish). After a couple moves to the top of the corner, move slightly left to the exposed arĂȘte. Climb the large patina plates on the arĂȘte to the top. Pro includes TCUs and maybe a slung plate or two. It looks questionable from below, but ends up having solid placements right where you need them (PG). The best route on the crag.

Ditto what AJ said...the climbing is good and the protection, despite appearances, is actually quite good.
