Climb up a face then traverse right to a fingercrack in right facing corner. Crank up using good locks and poor feet, then rest in the alcove below the bulge. Climb partway out the bulge then reach left to an incut shelf, dangle, and mantle like a fiend!


This is the left facing corner in between Retard's Recess and Paradise Lost.


Double rack thin to hand sized.

Had a blast on this route, caught myself laughing with my feet swinging making the ledge traverse. Can't wait to try straight up. Jun 9, 2007

had a hard time commiting to the mantle with tthe pro low and behind me- looking at falling back with my unprotected head slamming into the dihedral; on TR, though, it's a very different story. Aug 18, 2007

I remember this being a serious pumpfest. Great fingercrack though. Mar 20, 2008
FA was actually Paul Davidson with Mike Lawson and Mark Peterson.

I was quite happy to be up in that pumpy bulge, trying to get a hex in and see that exit out left. Exciting when you're getting pumped.
Nice little bit of a hidden gem I thought. Different than most of the crack pumps out here. Nov 11, 2008
