The obvious crack with the lag bolt.  The bolt has no purpose except to make us scratch our heads.

[Hide Comment] Tony Goodwin mentioned that he had climbed it back in the day and thought it was "pretty hard for a 5.7". It gets a 5.8+ now and is still pretty stiff. Apr 6, 2011

[Hide Comment] If you like crack you'll find it to be 5.7 for a few moves but mostly really cruiser. I loved this climb, the rock is really, really good! Oct 5, 2017
