Stepping

Description 

A combination of crack and flake climbing keeps Stepping Out consistently interesting. The first 30' or so will probably get your attention.

Starting at an obvious hueco, climb a hand/fist crack about 12' to a spacious ledge. From the ledge, move up through a finger crack another 15' or so; protect well to avoid a ledge fall. When the crack peters out at a smaller ledge, move up and right to a flake system that will take you to the top.

Location 

Located in the Graham's Crack area, about 10' right of The Oak.

Protection 

Mostly small to medium gear; a #3 Camalot or equivalent will come in handy for the opening crack. Bolted anchors.

awkward move down low before little ledge. Then another awkward move around the tree. Bring a knife to clean the briars off after the first send of the day...
