Description

I saw this route about a year ago and came back with some big cams and realized even those were too small (or so I thought from the ground). I checked it out on TR and then free soloed it when my partner wanted no part of it despite it being a very clean crack (sport climbers, jeez).

Start 40ft left of Salsa Verde and about 15ft. right of Death and Disfiguration. Climb up a slab behind a pine tree to an enormously wide, left-angling crack in a left-facing corner. You can get some pro just before the wide crack, then pull the only technical move to get into the crack. From there, tunnel through the low-angled chimney to emerge on the east face. Surprisingly, there is a crack that takes gear inside the wide slot, though I doubt you could fall out even if you tried. The "R" or maybe only a "PG-13" comes from a small fall potential onto the slab near the tree before getting into the wide crack.

Location

The extremely wide crack in a left-facing dihedral between Death and Disfiguration and Salsa Verde.

Protection

Standard rack will work just fine.
