Description

At the very left end of the left side of the Corral Wall, just left of Honky Justice (identified by bolts and a brown lump of epoxy for the crux hold) is a left-leaning crack. Climb up the left-leaning, left-facing offset passing some poor rock and questionable protection along the way. Judicious avoidance of poor sections of crack make this climb reasonably well protected, but sound judgement is required. Near the top, as the crack goes vertical, the difficulty eases off & you arrive at a bolted anchor from which you can rap 20 Meters to the ground.

If it were better cleaned or more solid in general, I'd give it a star. It needs worked over!

Protection

A standard light rack. Watch for loose rock in the crack and protect carefully.

The route description should be edited to read "far LEFT end of Corral Wall". It's listed on the topo photo in the Vogel guide, but not in any of the text.

Fun climbing, but questionable rock and some questionable placements within. The resulting tricky/questionable gear warrants a PG-13 rating. Dec 15, 2010
