Dave at the crux.

This line definitely draws your eye as you climb Unknown Crack. It makes you wonder if there are enough features to climb it. Sure enough, there are enough features, but it is quite short.

You can actually clip all 3 bolts from the right, then downclimb a bit and get out on the arete...or you can start from the left and fight to make the second and third clips.


This lies ~20 feet to the left of Unknown Crack on a riblet.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.
