Description Suggest change

This is located on Squat Rock, straight downhill (not far) from Rupley Towers. The easiest approach may be to start down the narrow gully to the Southwest side of this tower, and look to your left on the tower for a rappel anchor. This is where the route ends. Rappel off of this anchor.

The route climbs the singular crack in the face. It begins as a seam, with a few tough moves to get established in the crack at a good stance. The crack continues up through some horizontal white bands, and past a horizontal crack (another okay stance). Above this the wall steepens and the crack becomes off-fingers to fingers, and ends on a mantle. Either step left here for very easy climbing into the gully, or step right and turn the bulge through another tips crack and up to the chains.

Walkoff up to the left toward Rupley Towers.

EFR's book rates this as 5.9+, but it is solid 5.10. This is a pumpy route with few good stances. The crack takes finger locks okay, but is somewhat shallow in places, and hard to jam.
