This route is not good for a new leader. Placing gear for the first 15 feet is awkward and working up through the middle section as well. The flared dike up in the middle section fades and can make things interesting. The second pitch is really nice. Offers some opportunities to TR some of the harder routes up that face.


Climbs and obvious crack on the left side of Sea of Screams. A big boulder marks the start of this route. Rap off from the chains up top.


Standard Gear.

The first 15 feet is like a flaring seam hand crack you find at Lumpy Ridge, CO. You can jam some small aliens or the like in the way back about 10 feet up. Cheers!

Or just start on the boulder to the right, you can stem out over the "start hole" and put a .75 in the flake up high on the left and then fire on up.
