Description Suggest change

Climb S-Crack, or Standard Thumb/Indecent Exposure to Lunch Ledge.

S-Direct tackles the immaculate slab left of the Standard Thumb "Trough" pitch.

R-rating still deserved despite new bolts in recent years.

Protection Suggest change

Standard Rack to climb one of the routes to Lunch Ledge....then just a few draws on the S-Direct Slab, plus some slings to tie off knobs!
