This is between Hermanutic and the Sawdust cracks. Greasy tips locks lead to a juggy hand crack. Good rock.

The protection is maybe PG- bomber, but it's too strenuous to place it until you're a ways up.


According to the O'Kelly's Crack maxum (first 10 feet don't count toward the rating), this route should be 5.9! The bottom is hard (and has gotten a bit harder as the ground at the base has eroded away over the years). Apr 16, 2003
Maybe the rating should be V2 for the boulder problem, and 5.9 for the route. May 13, 2003
The new sign says 5.11a! Sep 8, 2006

Bouldery move off the ground to a couple nasty/greasy tips locks moves or a few lieback moves. Feels about the same difficulty whether you lieback or lock, just decide whether you want insecure hands or insecure feet. Jan 10, 2008
