This is a right arching finger crack. Start in the crack climb it to its end then continue up face and slightly left to a two bolt anchor.


After arriving at the base of the large slab scramble up and right of face to base of Girlie Man. The crack is 5 feet to the right of Girlie Man.


A single set of Cams or stoppers up to 0.75" works well.

I honestly don't know why this gets the pg-13 rating. There is a bit of run out at the top but you won't deck and it's on easier ground. pro was fine, just where I wanted to stick my hands and feet is all.
