Another popular route. Follow the chimney and large flake system to the top. Some of the holds can a bit hard to find, adding to the fun a bit. Often done as a top rope but leadable with large gear.

  • RCM&W #48, p.214.


The crack is located about half way between Bluebells and Superior Crack.


Larger gear #2-#5 camalots, and some big bros. Standard top rope setup.

This is a great route to do on top rope, would also be a fun lead if you have big enough gear. Lots of interesting moves on this route, it can be as difficult or as easy as you want it to be depending on how you approach it. Lots of fun.
