Breaking Rocks is Hard to Do
Trad, 100 ft,
Avg: 2.7 from 46
FA: Rich Gottlieb, Jack Carter - 1978

Starting in an alcove left of an arete, thrash through the tough off-width to gain the crack that the off-width narrows into. Follow this steep crack to its end, then move right and up through another crack to end at a spacious ledge.
