Description

From RCM&W

A reachy crux near the bottom leads to slightly easier climbing above. Start on the face between Ex Nihilo and Sunny and Sheer. Climb up through double cracklets (crux at pin) and enter the 5.9 corner above.

Protection

Standard Rack, larger pieces for a toprope setup

in the amphitheater. top out is just in front of the stone wall. for anchor, put small nuts, hexes, or cams in the crack systems just in front of the stone wall.

fun route with cool features: clean, paraellel cracks; crystal (?) jugs; detached flake at the start. May 3, 2009

Description says "reachy crux." At 5.7", should I stay away, or should it probably still be doable? Jun 23, 2014

Thanks Peter. I flashed Rapprochement this weekend and totally agree the crux is quite reachy! But totally doable at 5'7". The holds are all there, probably someone shorter than me could do it using different footholds or target hand hold than I used. Sep 16, 2014
