Kristina on Slaughterfist.


This is the farthest route right (north) on the main Tiara Rado cliff band. It is located just past First Impressions and will be the obvious, offwidth flake just left of a pillar. Climb the ever widening flake with a combination of holds on the flake and offwidth moves - or if you spend too much time in Rifle, lay it back and throw in kneebars whenever you feel like it. I found this thing fairly enjoyable for being so wide, though maybe that is because I could lay back and kneebar.... Top out on the ledge and build an anchor here. To descend, move 20' left and rap off a chockstone.


It is just around the corner to the right of First Impressions. It is the wide flake on the right.


Unfortunately it has been a while, but it is wide. Probably bring #3 through old #5 Camalots.

Aw, well not all firsts are proud. First time crashing a car, first STD, first FA. I think we did this on Halloween day, 2007?
