Description [Edit]

A little finger crack, a little stemming, until you hit easier ground about halfway up.

Just to the right of American Beauty Crack.

Protection [Edit]

Few moves at start then easy, good pro: finger- to hand-sized.

Wenzel and I climbed this after a long night in the Everleigh Club in Chicago. We closed the place down, got in the car, took advantage of "courage in our rucksacs" and sped up to the Lake. Too hung over to climb anything hard we went up the the Old Sandstone to work on the topo for The Extremist's Guide, and ended up climbing this and Girls Named Sue.

This is more like 5.6, maybe 5.5. One of the few feather-bagged routes at DL. Apr 4, 2011

Someone needs to get that damn piece of wire out of this thing, there was a small cam stuck back in there and someone tried to fish it out with something like a coat hanger which has now been sticking out of the crack for over a year. I've tried multiple times.. someone get after it. 3 days ago
