A tricky shift left 20' up leads to a deliciously thin tips crack and crux. Enjoy.
This route takes bomber gear, if you can hang on to place it. And be careful not to block those jammies!


100' right of Peney's, at a wide, flat spot in the trail, below the obvious thin crack in the steep wall.


#1 & #2 Camalots low, then small cams and stoppers and/or tricams.

LOVE this route, could e one of the most classic lines on the mountain. The climbing i fun and interesting with 2 pleasant cruxes, the second being on the slopey topout. But best of all is that the pro is SOLID, bring 2 bd #1's and they slot in perfect before the first and second crux. not an easy climb by any means.

This is a gem of a little pitch. Great on your way out when you want just a little more climbing. Awesome finger crack. Great gear everywhere.
