Scramble up to a belay on a large ledge, below the overhang. Getting your hands out to the lip is easy, but standing up and then climbing over to easier ground is the crux. It involves liebacking and deep fist jams. The moves are fun, but the rock quality isn't great.


This is well right of other other northern end routes, near the Pillars of Pain. An obvious hand and fist crack goes out through a roof near the top of the wall. The roof has a wall along one side of the crack.
