A fairly nice crack route; the crux is a shallow, flared slot. This climb is in the shade most of the day.

Standard rack.

The route starts in a groove type book with shallow crack. You can protect the small roof at the top of the book with a medium stopper or small Metolius or alien. Awkward movement will allow you to gain a 1 1/2" - 2" hand crack just above. The business area is definitely getting out of the groove/book area to gain the hand crack above. If you're tall this route may seem easier than .9 as the top section is maybe on .7.

Medium stoppers, small to 2". 1-2" crack for anchor or further behind the route are some large blocks that can be used if you've got some big cams 3.5" or greater.

Walk off by scrambling up and over boulder at top of route to sandy area - head left or east down to base. Feb 18, 2007

Awkward and strenuous for about 30 seconds. Place low or tall pro and start wiggling. Feb 18, 2007

Start is way funky and pretty tough for .9. I'd call that start .10a. Oct 29, 2011
