Description

An interesting crack climb just left of Desert Dessert.

Start in a steep finger crack which widens slightly before switching cracks to the right (crux) and finishing on hand crack with some loose rock and face holds.

Bolted anchor.

Location

between Human Sacrifice (bolted 10.c) and Desert Dessert (bolted 11.a)

Protection

Mostly small tcu's. Crux is small stoppers and micro cams, a hand sized piece for higher up but nothing bigger than 2".

The top section can be a little run out, a #4 C4 fits amazingly in a weird pocket and is worth bringing for that reason alone Apr 7, 2014

What a fun crack pitch! Burly start that doesn't let up much after that. The top pod referenced in the prior comment also takes a small stopper if you don't want to haul up a #4 camalot. I would agree that the top is lichenated, somewhat loose and somewhat runout. Welcome to Vantage. Feb 16, 2016

One of the better vantage climbs. The first 2/3 of the climb is stellar well protected finger cracks. The last bit is fine if you take your time to figure it out. Apr 18, 2018
