This thin layback and face route lies on the right side of the south face of The Lynch Crag. Climb the thin layback and face (11d) past 5 bolts to where the climbing eases and the crack widens. Above a final bolt protects a 5.10c move to a 2 bolt anchor. Rappel 85 feet to ground.


6 bolts and a couple of thin to 0.5 inch pieces.


Burly! Nearly every move up until the easy crack is 5.11, with some .11+ mixed in for good measure. I thought the crux was on the thin slab just before the easy crack. Give it a TR burn after doing the .9 or .10a if you can't lead at this grade. Jan 5, 2013

WE TR'd this one, cool moves lots of side pullin and body tension for me. Great location, and once again Sunny! Mar 7, 2007
Power followed by technique and power. A key hold broke as I moved past the third bolt on the way to the fourth. Moving to the fourth bolt is certainly harder, and it will effect clipping the third. Since I thought the crux was higher, I don't think it effects the grade accept to settle it in at 5.11d. Apr 4, 2005
