Previously called "The Original Route" this stunning corner crack will test all of your skills and take all of your gear. Layback, stem, face climb, and jam your way up to the crux at the very end. Good steming just before the top will allow you to work out the cruxy overhanging moves to get up over the lip and to the chains.
This route follows up the main corner crack in the left facing dihedral of the wall.
The route will take gear to 3", but gear to 2" will probably suffice. Bring lots of gear because this route is long with extra finger size pieces needed for the end.

The pitch is quite long if you belay from directly downhill of the dihedral. 70m rope came in handy, especially on the descent. Full value!

Stunning line thats very intimidating from the base. Second pitch is a 11a finger crack followed by some 10- liebacking into a fun finger traverse and up a slab that leads you to the top. Also a great pitch! Bring small gear, two ropes and/or a bunch of long slings, the second pitch is longer then it would seem. I ran out of runners and had one rope, and paid the price with some horrendous drag. Full value!
