Description

A neat, recommended trad climb. Start INSIDE the obvious cave at ground level, jam out the crack in the ceiling, pull out onto the varnished face above on bomber handjams, and jam up the crack to easier terrain above. The rock is good, especially at the bottom, and takes great pro. Recommended, and good practice for learning to trust jams!

Location

Look for an obvious cave in the base of the Slab Wall, behind the Inclined Boulder. A steep splitter handcrack comes out of the cave and shoots up the steep face above. Walk off or lower off the bolted anchor just right of the topout.

Protection

Trad gear: bring a few cams up to a #1 C4 for the bottom, and a few big nuts for the top. Two-bolt anchor at top. Rope grooves in the rock limit lateral rope movement.
