Description

This route starts on face moves then quickly moves to hand jams and stemming. The gear is solid but the rock on the face to the outside of the crack is not so much. Try and stay deep in the crack. The crux comes high while moving past a (questionable)piton and a diminishing crack to more face moves. Its a bit runnout above the pin. Feeling squirrelly, top rope it. Its a great lead, but a more convenient top rope. Side note: I almost stuck my hand in a bat...watch out.

Location

The obvious crack splitting up the center of the Miller Pillar. You'll see the dingleberry (large roundish boulder) near the bottom. The Miller Pillar is found to the left and just behind the first huge cliff face at the bottom of the canyon.
