Quality stem corner into a steeper-than-it-looks splitter. Low crux, but still sustained.


This is the farthest upstream of South Nuttal's hard finger cracks. You can walk or rap to it. See the guidebook for more information.


stoppers, finger-sized pieces, and perhaps a few larger ones up to red or green camalot. Two new bolt anchors.

Great climb, a bit dirty from runoff at the top though. We approached via the walk in from Elverson Rd. We didn't get lost and it took about an hour to the base of the climb (contrary to the 25 minute approach time suggested in the guide.) We also encountered tons of poison ivy. I think I'd rap in next time.
