Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>


This route starts with a bouldery finger-crack, but once you get off the ground, eases up substantially until the upper crux. Pull the low-roof, then up to a hueco, move right until you gain the finger-crack that runs to the top. The crux is a short section near the top, where the crack tapers out and a few thin moves are rewarded by a solid hand-jam.


This route is located in between the popular 'Beginner's Only' and 'Where Real Men Dare'. Obvious finger crack that starts at a low roof (the bouldery start).


Excellent pro, mostly small-to-mid cams and/or nuts. Shuts at top.

Comparing this thing to the likes of maybe Rapscallions Blues and you will think this is no harder 5.10a.

This route definitely is less sustained that Rap. Blues, but the moves getting off the ground and bumping up to the face pockets are just as difficult.
