Description 

This crack climb is more continuously pumpy and has almost no good rest stances compared to most White Rock cracks at this grade.

A right leaning crack in the middle of a face with small holds and pockets. The first difficulty is at a wide pod about halfway up. Just after the pod is the crux with less obvious footholds- gun it through to the jug. The final 8 feet is still hard, after the basalt changes to a more smoother texture; here, the climb is steeper but the crack opens up for insecure hand jams. The anchor is just left at the finish, and can be used to set a TR on Little Shop of Horrors.


Location 

Obvious right-leaning crack on the face right of the sport climbs Monsterpiece Theatre and Little Shop of Horrors.


Protection 

Standard rack of nuts and cams from 0.5" to 3". The Little Shop of Horrors 2-bolt anchor is easily reached from this route.
