Description

Follow the crack up and over the overlap. The crux move would be getting over the overlap. Great cardio pump climb with a lot of sustained moves.

This is a very good climb to enhance your skills if you are starting to crack climb.

Location

Left buttress of the Back Wall.

Protection

Take the trail to the left to set up a top rope anchor. An equalized set of nuts and a hex or two will work out fine, you can also just sling the boulder on top. This route can also be led.

I aid climbed this with cams/hexes/nuts. Pretty fun to practice clean aid. Oct 5, 2009

This is one of the few TRs at Stoney that can be reasonably led. Mar 1, 2009
