Description

Classic NRG route with good variety...crack (tips-fingers-hands), thin face/slab (crux), and steep flake (layback).

Climb crack to vertical slot mid-route. Protect well, solve slabby crux and move up face to nice horizontal. Then, follow left-leaning crack to flake and proceed to the top. Crux is brief, but technical, and requires some thought.

Pro is good.

Location

After descending Fern Point ladders, walk left through corridor along wall. Pass an arete/corner to the left and continue along Fern Point Slab area. Look for an obvious roof at the top of the cliff with a distinct right-facing flake. The route starts directly below in an awkward, shallow, flaring dihedral. Have fun!

Protection

Small to medium pro. TCUs work nicely in spots. Anchor shuts found to the left (some crawling under roof may be required). Micronuts will be useful.
