Description

This is a classic crack climb in a somewhat obscure location. Pitch 1 (5.7) is pure hands, with the crux moving over a small overhang. Pitch 2 (5.7) is a very clean corner, with finger and flared hand jamming, widening to pure hands near the top. It is located at the right end of the Godzilla Face.

Alas if it could only be longer! Or just had the two pitches truly stacked on top of one another. As an out of shape trad climber trying to get his lead head back it felt great to crush this climb. with great foot jams the whole + solid slab divots on the upper pitch your really can't rate this anything above a 7, I really don't think it is sandbagged at all.

I linked the two pitches into one, not recommended. The drag was relatively reasonable, but clipping can be awkward on p2 and the extra drag made the climb seem a lot harder than it was. P2 was lichen covered, grainy and far from 'clean'...could be much better if it got more traffic, but I sincerely doubt it ever will... Apr 21, 2014

fun climb on the tougher end of 5.7. the belay ledge for the start of the second pitch is nice and shady, i.e. good for hot days. Jun 9, 2013

This climb definitely seems overlooked. It's super splitter, albeit a little hard to get to, and the ants biting you at the the belay beneath the climb sure didn't help :P

Super fun climb, but did feel a bit sandbagged, even for the area. Jul 16, 2012

i did hot buttered rump then scrambled over to do this climb. fun, covered in lichen, you can tell no one has touched these in years and they are sandbagged to boot. Jun 25, 2012
