A fun but contrived little route to try if you happened to be climbing on the adjacent cracks. Ascend the face between Cussin' Crack and Noseprick while staying away from the cracks. Fun and balancy face climbing on crimpers the whole way.


In between Cussin' Crack and Noseprick.


Standard TR set up. Plenty of options for placements (large cams 3" to 4" work well.)

This is a TR route. No pro on lead unless you plug stuff into the cracks off to the side.
