A right facing flare that presents challenging thin crack and face moves. Face climb into the start of the flare (10a), then follow the crack (11b/c) to a two bolt anchor.


Located between The Source and B.C.'s Ouch Chimney. Approach past the base of Caliente.


Several thin up to 2"

A good looking line that is marred by limited traffic. The business section could use some excavating. The rock is quite grainy as well. However, in its current state I enjoyed a four star experience on a two star route. With more traffic it could approach classic status. Jun 7, 2015
I echo the sentiments of the comment above. A great route that I definitely recommend. Bring plenty of thin gear for the lead. Although the route beta says the route is 160', it's not and can be top roped with a 70m from a bolted anchor above. I can't confirm whether a 60m will get you up and down. Jul 23, 2017
Great tips locks on this. What's with the bolted anchor at the base? And there's two bolts between this and BC Ouch up the blunt arete and a third at the top, ever get sent? Jan 2, 2018
