Yes, run-out at the bottom with some chimney off-width moves involving "the horse". Great pro in the upper cracks. Sep 10, 2010

Once known as the "Horse's Ass" (Smith & Zimmerman, 1970). They give it a 5.6, which I think is about right if you wander around following the holds instead of trying to stick closely to the crack.

More natural as a lead if you wander; more interesting moves if you limit yourself to the crack and holds to the right of the corner. Aug 29, 2011

I thought the gear was fine way down low at the crux. I actually slid off the slopers in the pouring rain and was caught by a blue x4. Once past the crux there isn't gear for a bit and you could deck but its much easier than 5.7 at that point. Climb this instead of the horse! Jun 14, 2015
