Enjoyable but wide. EATS #3s for breakfast.


This is one of the best moderate crack pitches in the area. Climb the fun fist and offwidth crack to a nice flake handcrack and finish at bolts.


Start at some boulders right of Spike and left of Special K.


#1 - #4 Camalots.

Per eDixon: there is a 2 bolt anchor now.
