Description

Varied climbing, with somewhat tricky gear placements, up the corner to a distinct crux at a small roof just below the anchors. You'll need to employ all of your climbing skills on this one to succeed.

Location

The obvious left-facing corner on the left end of the east face between Grinder on the right and John Hartman's Proud Rock Climb on the left.

Protection

Gear to 3", bolted anchor/rap

As others have said, emphasis on small gear for this one. This climb eats up nuts, especially offsets. I placed 1 blue camalot and 1 green camalot, and everything else was smaller. Tiny cams are useful. Of course, YMMV.

Really cool climb requiring a variety of techniques. I found it to be very well protected. Aug 4, 2014

BETA below. Don't read if you don't want Beta.

1) Bring a lot of smaller cams. I used all my X4's .1-.4.

2) a .5 fits well just under the roof crux. Jul 9, 2014

at least 3, .3 cams help out. Jul 24, 2013
