Description

This route is a right-leaning mostly-fingers broken crack system that increases in difficult to a crescendo in the final moves. Although there are some solid finger-locks, the crack also has many intermittent 'plates' that induce side-pulling and other techniques. Great feet, good rests and aesthetic positioning make this route a must-do! I haven't seen too many people on it, but it is definitely a high-quality route.

Location

The route is located left of the huge roof that marks Monolith Wall/Buttress. Very obvious from the trail. Shuts at the top.

Protection

Standard rack. I found it useful to have a few larger pieces, BD 1, 2 and 3 although most is in the finger range. The flaring top-section, though wide-looking, had bomber placements for both a blue alien and orange metolius. Bolted anchor.
