Description [Suggest Change]

Enjoy the steep jams at the bottom to a crux bulge move and then easier climbing above. A fun route as part of a circuit or as a warm-up for other quality climbs in the area.

Location [Suggest Change]

John's Crack (East side) shares the crack with Manuel's Horror (West side). Get down by a short hop off the Northwest corner.

Protection [Suggest Change]

A crash pad or big cams to set up an anchor.

This route can be led if you don't want to TR or solo it. Medium cams to lead. Big ones for the anchor as has been said. Feb 3, 2007

Not a lot of routes of this grade in the area so I led it. I thought it was pretty stout getting over the bulge, and used 3 cams even though its only 18ft. Anchor didn't need anything larger than 3. Feb 26, 2018
