Casey above the crux and into the beautiful finger...
Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


This climb starts slightly down the hill from Penny Lane and Crime of the Century. I think this might be harder then Crime of the Century?

climb a thin crack up to a layback flare or jam straight in, either way it's hard. The crux is the bulge 30 feet up.


Thin finger sized gear

This might have a few moves that are harder than any found on Crime of the Century, but it is nowehere near as sustained, in my opinion.

Just a few additions. If the bottom is wet, which it often is, you can start on the face just left of the crack and traverse in. Protection widens to thin hands near the top, so bring more than just finger-sized pieces. A great climb.

definitely not harder than Crime, although the crux is a bit weird and insecure, unlike Crime. great route, though- and alot longer than we thought it was going to be!

Fun climb with a tricky start. Get past the crux early on and enjoy fun fingers to the top. Longer than it looks from the bottom.
