Description



From the extreme left end of the Wailing Sax Wall going from left to right it is the second obvious crack system. Easily protected, fun roof move (Elvis #4 or #5 rests nicely here). Near many other cool climbs on same formation.

Protection

Small to large pro, one huge "Elvis #5" cam for protection at the small roof move, pro for anchors, rap bolts to climbers left up and over an easy hump.

This route is WAY better than the two 5.8 routes to the right. Climb easy face features up to the 4" crack at the bulge. This is where the fun begins. Pull the roof (protect with a #4), and climb an amazing finger crack with bomber finger locks and great gear to the top. Route definitely deserves 3 stars. This was our favorite climb on the wall. We used (2) #3's and a #4 for the anchor up top. Leave the #2's, you don't need them. Dec 6, 2015

Think that Kimberly Glinka and I did this route way back when. Bruce Morris. Mar 31, 2007
