Description

Nice thin face climbing with an occasional thin crack move. Easily top-roped after climbing Oak Tree Flake or Grant's Crack.

Just right of Grant's Crack. The face climbing begins above a set of large, stacked blocks.

Protection

Use the crack above Grant's Crack (below a small tree) to build a TR anchor. Crack takes small to 3/4".

[Hide Comment] I belayed while my friend Tristan Higbee led this last Thursday. He used some smal nuts and some BD C3's. He looked great on this steep lead. I followed and every piece was great. This may be an easy TR but it is really rad as a lead! Oct 19, 2008

[Hide Comment] I agree with Christian, this is a protectable lead. Fun and engaging with bomber small nuts. If you go for the knob climbing up and right before exiting to the grant's crack line, just have your head on straight and sling the circular knob, it holds body weight, but I don't know if I'd whip on it.
