Description

This fine route may remind you of climbing in Tennessee, with its long vertical hand crack. Long, fun and well-protected, but the neophyte 5.7 leader might find it intimidating.

Start in the big corner, or on the flake right of the corner; move up until you can transition to a nice vertical crack system in the left face. Continue up the crack until it ends under a big roof, then make a traverse left and up to end at the left end of the roof.

Location

Starts at the back end of the Amphitheatre in a big corner. A 70m rope will reach the ground to rap from the fixed gear.

Protection

Small to medium cams, passive pro. Some big pieces are useful in the starting crack. Build a gear anchor.
