Look for the "lizard head". Pull on the "head" to the crimp above. Fun line. This one is more of a summer/fall climb as this face is one of the few that seep in winter, due to the north facing direction.


Lizard head is located just to the left of the start of Karen Crack. A 2-3 finger protruding hold (the lizard head) marks this route. Set up your TR by going up the access path around the north side of Karen. About 2/3 of the way up, look for a path to a ledge on your right. This can be deadly slick if wet.


Bolts on the ledge above the route. Long slings.
