Description 

Start at the base of Coroner's Crack, but take the right hand crack system, topping out to the right.

This is a great route for beginner trad climbers. It is a fun climb with large, obvious, easy to place pro from good solid rests. The crux is in the middle section and is initially puzzly for its grade, thus the (+). Watch for some of the ever-present cactus on the top.

I'm sure we're not the real FA, but this route is not named in Hanson's '99 revision guide.


Location 

This uses the same start as Coroner's Crack, left of the Labor Day/ Jerry's Kids face.


Protection 

Mostly larger pieces. I used hexes & a 2.5 tri-cam.
