Description

Just right of Crescent Crack, is a thin crack/seam that doesn't protect well. It requires thin fingers and teeny tiny toe jams, until well... you Lunge or Plunge. Watch the flake near the top as it seems like it is going to come down soon.

Protection

Micro nuts for the climb, and a good selection for the anchors.

Make sure those nuts are good! seen a few folks deck on this after lungeing, then plungeing, and then ripping all their nuts. had a partner land on me from the "lunge" (more like I body checked him into the wall, now that's a spotter!) A stout lead, but great when you sent it! May 24, 2005

Fun route! Takes HB offsets well with a screamer on the top pieces. Probably only worth 1 star, but this was the first 5.10 I led in '86 so I have fond memories. Jun 29, 2005
