Crack with fixed or drilled pin and steep face. Widely spaced bolts with a good run at the top make it pretty exciting to lead.


First route left of the offwidth (Chicken Coop) go straight up then angle left after last bolt.


bolts, fixed or drilled pin.

Spectacular route, .4 BD cam protects the runout and crux between first and second bolt! Classic!
