Description Suggest change

This route is located on the far right side of the Nautilus as you view it from the parking lot. It is a wide right-facing dihedral. To access it scramble up to the ledge at its base. The crack in this dihedral is fat. Suck it up, use some technique and/or lay it back in sections and go. I wish I could give a more vivid description of this generic looking dihedral. I'll just say that it held my attention from start to finish. I jammed, stemmed and did some laybacking.As far as fatties go, this is a good sampler.

Protection Suggest change

I did this route with nothing more than 1 #4 Camalot. I wish that I had brought my #5 and #6 Friends also. There are 2 adjacent cracks, where you can sometimes place smaller gear. Upon finishing this climb, establish a gear belay in a scoop at the top. To descend, locate the nearby rap anchor on the back side of this section of the Nautilus and head for the ledge below. Bring a light standard rack, and go heavy on the big stuff.
