Description

Can you say perfect jams? This route has them for sure. The route is the right crack on the stunning pillar. It is immediately right of Cruising Lane. The first half is great hand jams behind a right facing flake. The upper middle section is wider, but casual to a rest. The final section is weird, poorly protected and most often sandy. Nice warm up for the climbing partner who kept you up snoring the night before.

Location

Funk Rock City, right of Cruising Lane

Protection

Hand sized gear mostly, with a fist sized piece or two and some TCUs and tri-cams up high.

This was at least as hard as cruising lane. Goofy up high... fun climb. Nov 22, 2010

Nice, sustained jamming on great rock.

Route is certainly not PG13, so don't let the MP rating deter you. Apr 21, 2014

This climb is definitely not PG13. Not even close. You have to really look for the gear at the top, but it's all there, if you have the gear. (ie. Aliens, C3's, totems) Good warmup for the other cracks. Apr 6, 2016

The hand crack is sustained and fun if you know how to jam. It may be hard for anyone who isn't so comfortable with jamming and decides to lieback. The top was a little tricky and sandy, but it was a fun dihedral with okay gear placement. Definitely not PG13, though! Oct 10, 2016
