Andy Sunskis, well past the crux on Mecca.

  • Description 

    Scramble up to the ledge (or belay from below) to the obvious splitter crack (one of the Butte's few). Funky moves lead up to a couple thin hand jams which is the crux about 10 feet up. This is quickly followed by a perfect hand crack that slowly widens as the climb progresses. Certainly one of the best climbs at the Butte.

    Single set of cams to 4 inches. Nuts and TCU's for anchor.


    Location 

    Descend via Shark Fin Gully or downclimb Heart Route (5.6) if you are so inclined.


    Protection 

    Full set of cams from TCU's to 4 inches. Nuts useful down low and for the anchor.

    Great super classic route, clean jamming, solid rock. Nice to have a large cam in an upper section. smaller nuts and a #2 helium friend for an anchor. came into the shade sometime past noon.
