DescriptionFear Factor is at present the farthest route on the left side of the crag. It starts just left of the obvious chimney and moves up two bolts before striking left. This traverse is a bit contrived as you are only a few feet above the obvious ledge, but the rock and moves above make it worth it. Engage a 5.9 crux move over a bulge, move up, and breath deep as you negotiate an exciting run-out up a superb slab (5.9-). Easier moves lead to the anchor.
Though relatively safe, there are probably better choices for the fledgling 5.9 leader.
