Description

Another classic pitch; one of the best cracks in GC. Face moves bring you to a bulge. Drop a small nut in a crack above, pull the tenuous crux moves, and rally up the corner to a ledge.

Location

The great-looking corner right of the Standard Route. P1 ends at a rap anchor shared with Thing in Between and Tigger. Single rope rap here or continue up Tigger/variations to the top.

Protection

Singles, from small to a #2 camalot. My foggy memory seems to recall a possible #3 camalot placement near the top of the corner, but I can't say for sure. Chain anchor.

There is no longer a fixed pin, but if you hurry you might find a stuck TCU about a third of the way up. Not ours, and we didn't succeed in getting it out. Great climb. Like the description says, there is a possible #3 placement towards the top, but it's not necessary because that's the easiest part and there are other options for pro. May 31, 2010

Fun climb! A little stressful getting off the ground. The crux is at the bottom above the talus that you are going to hit if you blow it. A couple of nut placements were very key to doing this climb safely. Apr 22, 2012

Awesome but shallow .4 placement right at the roof above the ground will help. Otherwise, found this pretty tenuous but classic.

There's a big and completely loose block about halfway up, but is luckily cammed fully in the crack. Ends up being a great jug and a good--if somewhat shifty-- foot.

Good nut placements are key, as the above posters have said. Jul 30, 2014
