This short climb has strenuous and awkward jamming in a deep corner. The first pitch starts with an easy traverse, then a 5.8+ finger jam, and easy hand jamming up to an awkward belay on top of a block. The crux second pitch goes over an overhang via hand jamming, liebacking, and stemming.


Gear to 3 or 4 inches

It is possible to do all the significant climbing in a single pitch and belay above the 5.9 section at a better stance. This leaves the second pitch as a scramble to the top. Just watch for rope drag when placing gear.
Fun route to do on the way down the friction descent. Great exposure and position. Jun 5, 2006
This route becomes a drainage after a rain. Wanted to do it, but it was flowing with water today. Oct 7, 2011
Looks like this is often over looked, it's about 1.5 pitches and worth a lap, not awkward for me and had some nice exposure. Take P1 past the overhanging part to a nice ledge. May 20, 2013
I think this is a terrific route. It may be short, but the setting is sort of intimidating, and the crux is full on gorilla laybacking up a double overhanging book. I did this with Mike Jaffe back in '74 with only nuts, and we belayed at the funkness below the crux. I'd recommend this to anyone leading at that level, so bring it on and pump it out!! Mar 29, 2015
