Description

This is the third route from the left on the small west-facing wall on the South Face of Surprising Crag, lying between Vitamin V and Dutch Oven.

Climb past an overhang, then follow a hand and finger crack to the top. Getting past a bulge at the start of the crack is the crux.

Protection

6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

This one felt the same if not a touch easier than the climb to the right to us. Aug 21, 2017

The climb only has a couple of 10a moves on it. Could be good for someone breaking into the grade. Nov 24, 2014

Another kinda sketchy first bolt. Not worse than any of the others on this crag, but a stick clip would be nice if you are not comfortable with high first bolts. Getting there is never that bad, it just looks high from the ground. Apr 13, 2014
