Description

A climb with a blend of thin crack climbing, fun face moves, and a desperate dynamic to finish. It'll make you sweat! Thin crack offers solid gear placements through entire climb. Route starts just to the left of a flaky crack (Handle with Care, 5.5), and can be accessed through Great Chimney (actually more of a gully and the bottom can be tricky).

Protection

small cams and a couple of small stoppers work great

I think this may be a little easier if you're tall... I can reach the crux undercling with both my feet in the giant horizontal... May 2, 2007

For a lead, the pro is small yet pretty solid (Lowe Balls, .1 and .2 Camalots, and #0 Metolius TCUs) ...probably the best protected 5.11 at the Lake. May 24, 2002
