Follow the finger crack on the left side of the wall. Nice crack, and a great moderate.


Gear to red Camalot, though most people just top-rope this one. Has rap anchors.

[Hide Comment] Super fun crack, there are lots of feet, so it makes for fun finger climbing, this would be a bold lead, takes super small gear, hard pressed for passive gear, but takes small tcu's and aliens pretty well. Nov 13, 2008
[Hide Comment] Morrison, I disagree. Please don't bolt this! I lead it twice now and one can sew it up with c3s or wired bliss TCUs or those link cams sink right in too. I challenge: the all nut accent (gulp). Seriously, someone has some studs next to Joe's crack and that looks terrible. You can unload your whole midrange rack on that climb, so I am happy someone pinched the hangers. Jan 19, 2009
[Hide Comment] Oh, a BOLD lead, sorry. Jan 19, 2009

[Hide Comment] LOVE this climb. A bit of a squeeze finger crack start with great feet, a few good breaks before the crux right below the roof and great holds to the anchor. A "must climb" if visiting the area. Oct 30, 2015
