Climb the flared crack through 2 strenuous bulges. Fingers to tight hands...trickier than it looks.


This route is located near the Crack Land area just across the gully and faces Southwest. Once at upper Crack Land, locate the routes, Thus Us or The Enemy Within, do an about face and walk about 50 feet to the north and look up. The route is perched on a nice granite slab overlook with great views of Boulder Canyon and upper Crack Land.


Small rack up to a #1 Camalot.
Walk off to the east or set a gear anchor for top-roping.

Nice work, Jason!
Despite being a short route, don't be fooled.
It is like a little Vedauwoo simulator, with fun climbing.

Not knowing what the route was and missing the entry in Crack Land, we did a tiny approach pitch for this 2 pitch line. Most will consider skipping the 1st pitch. The first pitch is lichenous and has a discontinuous nature, but its upper half has a nice smidgen of crack. Perhaps it is 5.7.
