Awesome crack route. can be seen from the trail walking up to the chin area. It is the one clean line that splits the cliff. sustained the whole way with 2 distinct mid/hard 10 cruxes. Climbing involves finger crack, flaring chimney, and exposed arete climbing...Classic route!


start by rapping in from the top or you can approach from the bottom


Gear is PG/R. No fixed protection or anchors at top. If toproped, sling the bush and put in a couple of pieces.

In the Fasulo guidebook Jim Adair is credited as doing the FA in the 70's. No specific date
