Another fine plaque!


A bolt gets you into a stem/chimney. Hands head up to a pedestal. Then hands amd pods slowly close to fingers in a corner.


JUst up the hill and right from Pigs on the Wing. Behind a large boulder. Look for the bolt just off the ground.


Hands to .5". You need several 1.5" to .75" for the finish. Save one or two .5" for the end.

Bolt got pulled. So now look for an EMPTY HOLE at the start of the route.

a couple pieces of info; this route eats up every bit of a 70m rope, and is tons of fun. bring many of .4 camalots/yellow metolius/yellow aliens to use on the start and finish. .5 Camalots are too big for the finger crack finish, though there is a #2 Camalot placement about 25+ feet below the anchors.
