from the base (Mike Z on lead)


A little run out at the start but once you pull into the overhanging crack you'll find gear everywhere.


starts just right of Weissners Dike
-after P2 connect with Weissners to top out or rap off the first pitch bolts on the same route (2 ropes or a 70 with easy down climbing for 20 feet)

This is a really fun route on good rock and a great feature. It doesn't get the attention it deserves, so please put some chalk to it.

Additionally from the belay (gear) at the end of the arch break right then up (5.8) to connect with P3 of Weissners Dike above. Alternatively if you wish to rap move down and left across a shelf (5.2) to connect with Weissners below the bolt anchors on P1
