Description

Climb the easy layback moves to start following the crack to reach a bulge. Pull through the bulge, thin hands with occasional jugs or hand jams. Continue up to reach a large horizontal below a bulging overhang. Place a good piece and fire up over the bulge, heading left (crux). Once you reach a stance, try to find some gear and continue left and then up the face. Gear is somewhat sparce near the top and holds can be a bit dirty and less positive that you would expect. Cool route, the 5.11a rating is more of an average rating, stout!

Location

Just around the corner heading downstream from S&M. Locate the left leaning crack on a slightly overhanging wall.

Protection

Gear to 3", Many different sized pieces, standard rack. Some small tcus or the like are helpful for the top. Bolted anchor.
