Wierd start to gain the ledge on Where's Carruther...


R-facing corner goes hands to wide hands. Bouldery start to gain face feet. opens up to #3 camalot or 3.5 friend for the rest of the route. Good stemming and crack feet though. Really good route!


just left of scarface in r-facing dihedral with bouldery start to a ledge.


book says 2x2, 2x2.5, 2x3, 3x3.5 (friends). Agree it's mainly #3 camalots up higher to the anchor. I took a 4 and never placed it. 3.5 camalot barely fit.

Good route but by no means does it deserve 4-stars. Surrounded by routes like Scarface, Black Uhruhu, Desert Vuarnet, Desert Shield, etc. 2.5 stars maximum.

Check out the extended version of WC. Continue past the anchors into a chimney capped by a bombay 7 incher, then to more straightforward OW and finally to overhanging fists. It probably checks in around 11+. You can see the bombay in the picture. . .

The start is a bit awkward and hard but just comit to the thin hands for a move or two hit the jug and it's over. I did get a 4 in about 8-10 feet below the anchor
