Description [Suggest Change]
This route can be found directly behind the Storm Mountain Amphitheatre, left of the prominent roof, in a corner, behind a pine tree (whew!). The first pitch follows a rough corner system 60' into a steep gully, to a belay off of cracks and boulders on left side of gully. Next pitch heads up opposite side of gully along a wide (5"), jagged crack that separates a huge block from the mountain. Sparse protection through here so take advatage of everything. After 50', mantle onto the block, clip finishing bolts of climb on outside face (or contrive a beautiful directional), and head up around brief face, off of the block to a rocky belay. Walk off as described for Layback Crack.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bring a standard rack (camalot sizes to 3 & all stoppers). Bring some long runners to tie of trees and rocks at the belays. A cordellete helps out a lot.
