Description

From Tax Man scramble up the wall to belay on a huge chockstone directly under the crack. I found the climbing to be better than it looked from below. About 30' up a spicy traverse to the right will get your attention. I gave the climb two stars as we combined it with H&R Block for a nice 100' pitch.

Protection

Medium and large gear work for this crack. Will gobble a few nuts too.

Really fun warm-up. It deserves 2 stars as opposed to the 1 in the book imo. Felt like Red Rocks 5.8, not Joshua Tree 5.8 (i.e. not scary, plentiful good pro), and if linked with H&R block (recommended) you have an easy descent with rap rings on bolts. Feb 28, 2018

I strongly second the suggestion to continue on to H&R Block for a great time. Nov 19, 2018
