The Great Escape climbs the obvious right-angling fault up the center of the cliff. It's amazing that a route of this grade climbs up this steep wall, as much harder routes exist both to the left and the right of The Great Escape.

This route is pretty much the perfect warmup. It's close to the harder routes and has good holds but maintains a steep angle throughout it's length. However, if you're here just to tick this route, I'd also say that this is worth the trip to the crag.

It's a bit runout to the first bolt. If you have an extra-super long stick, you could stick clip it, maybe. Start off the pile of boulders and begin climbing up and right. Follow the big holds to some tricky moves right below the chains.
