Description

A powerful start using lay-backs and jams leads to a wider/flaring crack above. At about 30ft, the crack disappears for a few moves requiring delicate face climbing and good nerves. The rock on either side of the crack is loose/unstable, but the crack itself is solid.

Location

Located on the "third Slab", this route climbs a blackened crack system (roughly acorss from garden Spire). Scramble off to the east into a wash.

Protection

Two large cams protect the mid-section (#3 camelot or bigger). A top-rope anchor can be set-up using small wires and tri-cams and a couple long cordalettes..
