BETA PHOTO: Very thin and cruxy!


This is an excellent sport crack in a paper thin line that opens to finger locks on a smooth face.


This thin crack starts just left of "A Fez for Your Monkey," and is just right and around from a prominent point on the cliff where a large Sub Alpine Fir grows. The trail squeezes between these two features and thus begins the "Wombat Wall."


Quick draws to anchor.

me and my brother Eric Roberts put this line up. If you start on hard boulder problem and go up crack, i think its probably 5.13a. It is also possible to do an easier start from left or right of thin boulder problem. Its called monkey trick
