This classic pitch climbs an obvious and beautiful left-arching crack on the north face of the crag. There are several 5.10 moves and an exposed, traversing 5.11 finale. Walk off descent.


Standard rack with several runners.

This is an incredible climb! Excellent rock, a lot of variety, and sustained moves; at least 4 out of 5 stars. Double ropes minimize potential rope drag. Nov 3, 2003
