A true death route, I only list it because the climbing is good and on great rock. This line can be tr'd easily, especially after doing Fool's.The crux is 15' from the top and your last gear is literally out of sight.
I was reeled in hand over hand after falling from the last move and only fell 70' instead of a 100'crater. Thanks guys !
See the COMMENTs to "Fools for a Day" for Beta on (slight) differences between the two routes.
In the center of the main slab (on the crag's left side)some 4th class. Angle up a tiny seam then move left and go for broke up the slab past a small pocket.Overcome a bulge at the top.
Some rp's and gear for a 1" pocket . tree belay
