Description

This climb is located about fifty feet left of October Light.

Start in a left-leaning trough that slowly peters out to a crack switch right. Follow this hands crack to a ledge where you can make a belay or with long runners climb through steep thin bulge to an all natural belay. This route is always guaranteed to be free of crowds and is actually pretty fun.

Protection

Rack of cams up to #4 Camalot; a set of stoppers and some long runners; and a #1 and #0.75, I think, for the anchor.

This route has some really cool climbing and is very fun. On top rope, a fun variation is to stay on the face for the whole climb until the last crack. It is unprotectable for most of the way this way but offers some fun climbing, especially if you stay left of the second crack system. Probably goes at a similar grade to using the crack. Apr 1, 2014

On TR, we used a left crack variation when the first crack ends. It's hard to see and would be scary to lead, but it made for an awesome jug/layback/heel hook move into a big hands crack that takes you to the same ledge. Really fun climbing, and we thought the rock quality was fine. Jun 7, 2018
