Description Suggest change

The route takes the beautiful arching crack just around the corner from Cornflake crack on the North Face. The arching crack ranges from 5.9 fingers at the bottom to an offwidth through the top of the arch over to the anchors. As I recall, the gear is excellent and there are plenty of stems on the lower part of the route. The crux is a strenous move or two through the offwidth ending in a lovely thin traverse to the anchors. The route continues as an aid climb for a couple of additional pitches.

Location Suggest change

North Face of Looking Glass. Obvious arching crack to the right of Cornflake

Protection Suggest change

Wide range of cams and passive gear. Save a #4 or #5 camalot for the crux. Fixed anchors at the top
