Mark attempts to crack this safe

This route ascends small ledges leading to a thin crack which takes you to a set of chain anchors. It overhangs slightly and is very pumpy. There are good gear placements, but the climbing is tiring. I have seen some good leader falls on this line. It is to the left of the prominent crack system of Crime and Punishment on Jailhouse Rock.


This route is mostly gear (small to medium cams or mid-sized nuts) with one bolt and chain anchors at the top. It can be toproped if someone wants to walk around to the top and descend to the anchors. Be careful

Good small wires and a very small cam can be found just before the final crux but you need some hang on to get them.

This is a great, fun route. The gear is quite good, but it gets a bit spaced out toward the top of the climb. The final crux can be protected nicely with a blue alien and a yellow alien.

You don't hear much about this route, but I thought it was great. Really excited to get on it again.
