This is the prominent crack in the corner just left of Physical Graffiti. Mostly hand size to a brutal offwidth finish! There is a mushroom shaped rock at the base. You can rap from the bolts at the top of Physical Graffiti (80 feet).


.75 to #5 camalot or equivalent (I used a 3.5, 4 , and 5 camalot at the widening top section)

I think left side in is the way to go.

No easy way to do it....pure offwidth crux! Jan 7, 2014

I had to try this upon first seeing it. Still very crumbly as of Dec. 2013. I had fun on the first half and am usually pretty good with OW, but no matter what I tried I could not get off the ledge with the overhanging OW, pull on hueco? right side, left side in? could not stem it, no toe-heel, drop knee on left, ended up down climbing route.

This route is still cleaning up, felt quite grainy. I climbed it a few days after Kye, still felt 10a to me so I don't think the missing block makes it any harder. Dec 15, 2012

Fun OW with cruxy moves at the beginning and end; dirty/chossy in places but only because it doesn't get climbed enough! I pulled off a decent sized block in the upper half, probably making the route closer to 10b. Nice warm up before Physical Graffiti ;) Dec 7, 2012

Getting into the wide is the crux, protects well. Feb 10, 2012
