Description

Awesome thin crack just left of "Bottomless Topless".

Pulling the roof will be the crux for most, but if leading, the top is pumper and a wee bit heady. Awkward, hard to see placements past the 2/3rds horizontal "rest".

Location

Obvious chalked up finger crack with a roof about 25' up on the front side of Snowshed, just left of the 10a chimney, "Bottomless Topless"

Protection

Thin rack, an arsennal of small cams up to about a 2" piece for right above the roof.

Or better perhaps, just set up a TR.

Great route, clean falls, great pro, just make sure you bring your offsets. A really good route to push the grade on. Jul 27, 2013
A great climb to push your trad ability to the next level - good protection and good to fall on. Took a 20'+ fall about 10' above the horizontal - 0.5" friend held perfectly Mar 7, 2009

One of the best cracks i have done so far. If you are up for the grade then this is a must do. A crux roof leads into thin liebacking on perfect finger locks. Awesome and sustained! Nov 23, 2008
