Crux lieback/finger jam moves on excellent rock down low lead to easier climbing above.


A few pieces of gear, or do it unroped (short, good landing, crux down low)

I love the two-facedness of this crack. The beginning is an excellent, demanding fingercrack and footwork crux on bullet, gorgeous rock. The jug this crux ends with announces the pleasant cruising above. The upper portion's rock is crumbly suddenly but solid enough and the perfect hands and fists are surrounded by jugs. Can't imagine bringing rope and gear. Mar 21, 2013

A nice little short route with crux finger holds down low and easier hand and fist jamming above. Nov 10, 2010

Basically a tall boulder problem. Crux is the first two or three moves, after which it quickly eases to about 5.6. A bit like an easier version of Uncle Fester. Nov 16, 2008
