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!

Yup, this is a reeeaallly good pitch. I found the crux to be lower on the route where you've got to work those damn green camalot jams for several moves. My partner did some stemming/liebacking stuff and used the roof on the right and it seemed easier that way, so YMMV. The top is a bit tricky, but you can make big reaches to good fingerlocks and just have to smear your feet for a few moves.
Go get on this one!! Sweet line, sustained difficulty, and always good stances to place gear. Can't ask for much more.

|Yep, this a gem. I always wonder about that block in the middle of the upper headwall and so never place gear there but I guess it is fine since everyone pulls and stands on it. Would agree that it is one of the best cracks in the valley.|
