Description [Edit]

Essentially a protectable face climb with 3 drilled pins on the upper section. Begin up the obvious thin crack to the right of Mecca. Thin protection in the crack leads to great face climbing up the dark, steep terrain above. Highly recommended and a full value climb.

Location [Edit]

Begin to the right of Mecca. Descend Shark Fin Gully or downclimb Heart Route (5.6) if you are so inclined.

Protection [Edit]

Nuts and TCU's for lower section, quickdraws for up higher. Nuts and TCU's for anchor.

I freaking love this climb! Really exciting face moves between drilled/glued pins with moderate run out! The thin crack start takes small cams some pieces I doubled up together for the sake of it.

Biggest cam you need is a BD#2 or a fat-ass nut/hex for a flared pod. Bring lots of aliens, TCU, or X4's what ever you got. The trick is to climb this route like a face and only use the crack hear and there.

I recommend building a small two piece anchor for the belayer and/or if the leader falls at the worst time... Nov 9, 2015
