Description 

This climb ascends an off finger crack with multiple cruxes. The first crux is just above the roof. The second is at the top, where the crack thins. Ring locks with a few and jams along the way. A must do for the .10d enthusiast. Rappel this route with one 70m rope to the top of the block.


Location 

This is the first climb you come to on the approach trail. Look for a large block with a finger crack going up and left through a small rooflet.


Protection 

Gear to 2.5 inches. Extra .5 inch to 1.5 inch pieces.

sooooo good. Contender for one of the best pitches of crack climbing in the valley. Lots of splitter, off fingers and thin hands stuff, but surprisingly secure (except crux). Crux is at the top when the crack gets thin and requires a big, punchy move to rail up higher.

Spit me off at the top, but even the fall is clean! Shit!! Good stuff!!!

No crowds, in the shade until the afternoon. Next to other killer climbs. Do this!
