This route is super-neglected. The crux is mostly just cranking hard on fingerlocks so go get it! Climb splitter fingers and thin hands to a rest. Figure out the funky sequence to gain the spectacular Wartley's Revenge-esque jug climbing and finish by firing up the crux finger and tips crack. Awesome!


This is pretty much the furthest right route on the Main Wall. There are others further, but they are of a very different character and not as classic. Hike past Time Bomb and locate the splitter crack surrounded by tiny seams. Scramble up and right to access the spacious belay ledge.


A double rack from BD. 0.75 to green C3 plus a 1 and 2 should be more than adequate to stitch this thing up.

Great route, can definitely be climbed safely with a double rack. Save a .5 or metolius orange size for your last piece, and use your purple metolius/green C3 sized pieces after the juggy sequence, that's the only part that feels punchy.
