This aesthetic and exciting climb follows a very thin crack with some face moves; shaded location.


an obvious thin crack on the left side of the crag


standard rack, mostly thin pieces

great climb, engaging, exciting. racked smallest Ballnutz, single black and blue Aliens, doubles in green Aliens up to red BD #1, plus extra third yellow and red Aliens, to do in one long pitch Mar 24, 2014
The gear is actually fine. The pin protects the crux moves and beyond (pin looks good up close). Definitely some loose/crumbly rock on occasion. Not a straightforward first pitch in my opinion. Feb 23, 2009

Hiked out to do this route, but passed after checking it out.

The gear looked marginal and the rock was very grainy. The rusted pin didn't inspire much confidence either. Perhaps the gear is better than appears from the ground. We did Kate's Bush to the right instead.

Anyone know if the gear is better than it looks? Apr 13, 2007
