Description

Start on the regular start of Deception but continue strait up the hand crack instead of moving out left. Climb up till you run out of rope and belay. Pitch two goes past a short (15ft)thin section that can be protected by RPs. Belay at the large flake and ledge then continue up the regular route or go over the bulges to the right for a little more fun.

Protection

multiple thin nuts or cams to 1.5"

Had a good time on this. The run-out section at the top can be well-protected from below with larger gear. Still, if you fall here then be prepared for a nasty fall into the right-facing corner. A fun route worth doing. Jul 21, 2008

The 5.9 face portion of this climb, although short, is super spicy and likely will result in a nasty fall even if any of the mini poor placements hold. For someone shorter like myself, the face was basically a smear fest attempting to get to one of the two places that had "holds." I was able to get in three nuts, BD stoppers size 5 and below and felt confident in none. Oct 25, 2015
