Climb an easy, right-trending crack to the base of a large roof. Make some long, unusual, crimpy moves over the overhang and funk your way into the corner to better holds. Rest up, and then contort past 10 feet of insecure stemming and palming to a good lieback. Make a few more big moves on easier terrain until you reach the anchors.


Left of Belligerent Buttress, this route climbs the obvious, left-facing corner.


4 bolts plus a 2 bolt anchor with chains.

This was the second route that I established on The Fang. Belligerent Buttress was the first. Both of the these lines were bolted & soon redpointed in September 1992. This is a very clean & unique line. Jul 9, 2016
