I would have given this 3 stars if the wide crack ran longer! That crack was a good place to practice leapfrogging pro (though I only had one cam to move!). Steep, but very secure jams. Dec 15, 2010

Lead first time in rock shoes, followed second time in approach shoes which made the foot jams easier and feel like a hands crack. Lower-angle route and hand stacks worked well for me, 1 #4 and two #3 protected it easily. Oct 13, 2010

Face moves can get you through the short offwidth. Mainly fist and hand jams. Slightly dirty if you follow the corner to the manzanita with rap slings. Feb 20, 2010

This is a great offwidth, and I usually don't like offwidths! Used a #4 BD and maybe a 4.5 at the start. Sustained climbing at grade for 50' or so, then easy flake all the way to the top. I ran it to the Manzanita (190') then rapped to the tree on Sloth Wall, then rapped to the gully. May 15, 2009
