This is a great introduction to crack climbing. Climb the double cracks in the corner to a good rest and some interesting/funky crack climbing above the rest to get to a two bolt belay anchor. This is a great route to practice some crack techniques because you can climb it many different ways practicing some different types of crack climbing. Good route with good rock.


Private Pizza climbs the cracks in the large dihedral on the left side of the wall below a large roof.


A 5.9 leader will probably want two to three sets of camming devices.

Check out the 5.9 on the far left of the Chocolate Wall.(See Swell Guidebook) It is the identical twin of this climb.

Pretty feasible to do with a double rack if you conserve your hand size pieces by placing on the left, even if you like to sew it up. Probably one of the friendlier hand cracks around and an absolute blast to hop on.
