Use the crack as much as possible, liebacking to the left. Ignore the guidebook and use the corner where it feels natural to grab it.


Right hand edge of the face to the right of Squeeze Play. Around the corner to the left of American Dream Roof.


Almost, but not quite enough to keep you from hitting the ground.

Went back and did this again. Cool, devious moves. Sustained. Jul 5, 2015

Really fun route and good lead! Bomber small cams protect the crux. Although attentive belay is a must to keep a falling climber off the deck. We started in the crack using face holds where they existed. Steller layback moves lead to a distinct crux where the crack pinches down to a seam, a few bad feet and small crimps allow you to gain the jugular horizontal at 25ft. We stayed off the arete which may have added a number grade or so. Grade is probably somewhere in the 5.10 range. Apr 22, 2012

If the corner is avoided all together, this definitely feels ~10a. Aug 20, 2011
To the left? To the left of "Squeeze Play"? I didn't get on it. Please post it up! It's not in the guidebook. Aug 21, 2009
I say use the right corner up top, it definitely felt more natural although you don't need it. Fun layback climbing! Jul 24, 2009
