Near the end of the difficulties

Description 

Amazing finger crack with plentiful gear. One of the most beautiful lines in the area. Lots of finger locking and crack technique required.


Location 

One of the first Roadside wall routes. This climb is so striking you will not miss it. In between two sport climbs.


Protection 

Up to 2 inches

If the route were 50 ft tall it would be impressive, but its barely 30 ft tall and graded softer than my Southface Bimbo down jacket. No hard moves, but a great route to run laps on, LOTS of laps.
