Really good stemming and hand jams. At about the 3/4 mark, start traversing right. Bad protection here, and some face moves.


There are basically two primary dihedrials right next to each other. This is the one on the left. Climb directly in the corner. Use the chains of Big Bang.


Trad (pro to 1").

My partner's and my fave, despite the brevity of length. Cool, facey crack climbing that throws a few sporty moves at you. The top is a bit broken. The last move is piton protected. The piton seemed sound and there's a crack nearby to back it up.

I had wondered about that... Yeah, it's in a horizontal right after the conclusion of the crack and just before the last moves to the anchor.

The loose rock at the top is gone.. it is still a bit loose near the top and a key jug is gone. Use caution and belay from the side.
