Description

In my humble opinion one of the best routes at Taylor's. The combination of vertical and horizontal cracks makes for both jams and face holds. This route protects very well throughout its course, taking stoppers especially well. Start in the middle of the rock and follow the line to the top. The moves switch from fingers to hands towards the top. Also a fun aid route if you can hit it on an off day.

Location

This route lies at the furthest left end of the Minnesota strip. Continue past The Column and scramble up to a large ledge. The route climbs the middle of this face.

Protection

Nuts, cams, hexes, nothing bigger than handsized. Emphasis on smaller stuff. Standard top rope setup.

This is one of my favorite leads to date. Protects exceptionally well through the crux and beyond. Oct 5, 2010

What a great route on the Strip. It is a very interesting onsite lead. A must for a "new to the area" .9/.10 trad leader! Oct 7, 2008
