Access

From the parking lot at the Grand Wash trailhead, walk northwest about 120 feet to the base of the route. It is an obvious finger crack in a right facing, left-leaning corner.

Description

Except for the first and last 10 feet (both 5.easy), the climb is in fact quite clean, solid and fun. Consistent fingers, with a few hand-sized pods. A mix of jamming, laybacking and some face holds down low, then a nice .9-ish layback to anchors. Drilled angle, knot-choc and a nut with good webbing and rings. Pull your rope with care, as the crack will try and gobble it.

Gear

Several 1/2-1 inch, #1x2 and #2 Camalots

Climbed this on Sunday.... tugged on the anchor and the nut popped out. I put another one in because I couldn't even get the old one to fit anywhere decent. Knot chock is definitely looking worn as well. This really does need a better anchor...... Nov 7, 2016

This is a good one. Anchor could probably use a big fat bolt. Feb 3, 2013
