Description

This climb feels considerably easier than Up From the Bog, even though the published grades indicate the opposite.

Pulling up over the initial block is entertaining. After that, some easy laybacking on a flake that seems destined to come off some day takes you to good incut holds. A smear here and a jam there and you're done.

Location

This is the obvious right hand crack.

Protection

There are lots of options available so a "standard" rack should be entirely sufficient. There is one stretch in the middle where the climbing is easier and the protection is harder.

As with Up From the Bog, there are bolts on a wall set back from the top.
