Great route for someone to start learning hand jams and finger locks. Oct 6, 2014

Big loose block - put your belayer off to the right side. If you enter the tomb toward the right you will miss the loose block. Not sure if it would actually come out.

Sweet route: the crux reminds me of an easier version of Roger's Roof. Jul 4, 2011
Nick: Definitely a loose block. It would be at foot level when standing up in tomb. Don't know if it qualifies as "death block" however. Agree it is a very nice route. Jun 29, 2011

Be aware of the two death blocks lurking on this route. I did it over Memorial Day weekend and they scared the crap out of me. May 28, 2007
