DescriptionThis shaded left-facing corner is just thin enough at the start to get your attention. The crux is the first 20 ft where the corner is smooth and the crack is pinched down to fingers in only a few spots. There is also a dirty layer of grime/lichen around the crack from the probable run-off that this climb sees after a storm. However, the dirt doesn't detract from the climbing and gives it an "First-Ascent" feel as you wonder if any climber has ever tried this straight-forward climb before. Above the first 20 ft, the climbing becomes more varied and a bit easier, with lots of options for protection and climbing styles.
At the top you gain a ledge that is around the corner from Poutine/Putain cracks.
LocationThis route is on the North facing part of the dome, visible from the parking area. There is a large Sotol bush at the bottom of the corner, which is at the top of a steep gully. It is usually shaded. The approach involves a fair amount of scrambling, especially the last 100 ft up the gully.
