DescriptionPitch 1, 10c 140 feet
Start up easy face climbing to reach the superb fracture ahead. Place pro and jam and lieback the strenuous finger crack (crux). Continue up past a small dihedral, to a thin section through discontinous fractures. Angle left to the shared anchors with Squash Blossom.
Pitch 2, 5.9 150 feet
Head slightly left off the belay and climb a nice finger and hand crack up through a slightly tricky section, to easy low angle climbing to the anchor, there is an occasional 5.7 move or so.
For a nice finish head up the Great Escape to top out.
