Tracy Farrell burls through the center part of the...

Description 

Fun and burly with immaculate stone.

Climbs up a slightly overhanging wall on beautiful edges - very continuous.

The very last move is the crux - throw left to a crummy sloper and attempt to match on this- then up to the anchors.

A local called this route by another name, but I am not 100% sure what he called it "Worth a Squeeze", or something like that? So it may have another alias.

50 feet long, this is the longest and probably hardest route at the crag. Vies with Superchunk for the best route here.


Location 

Between Superchunk and the dihedral - striking line and hard to miss.


Protection 

7 bolts to anchors

The name or alias you be referring to is "Worthwhile For a Squeeze Job." The climb is rad, I would recommend this to anyone interested. It is a striking climb that flows nicely with the crux at the top.

I wouldn't consider the last move a crux...
there's a bomber sloper with a crimp out to the right. it's chalked up and everything already. :P
