Description

Fun, balancy climbing on glacially-deposited Mineral Fork Tillite. Start just to the left of a left-facing corner and head up and slightly left. Use a couple of pockets and good edges, along with an undercling or two.

Some fun movement getting past the second and third bolts that requires committing yourself a bit farther left and away from some comforting holds than your mind would like.

Location

The left-most climb in the dark brownish-green tillite on the lower, southeast-facing part of The Wasp. Shares the top two bolts and anchor with Glacial Recession to the left.

Protection

3 bolts, hangers-and-rings anchor.

The crux for me was the move right before clipping the chains. Its a stretch to a hold above and to the left and a crimper on the right. Apr 18, 2011

Much pumpier than it looks. Tricky little climb, but worth doing. Jul 30, 2008
The crimps on the upper wall make the climb. May 5, 2008
