Description

Even better than it looks! Consistently challenging and well-protected crack climbing leads up to the corner. Continue up the corner past a final crux near the large block. Grovel up the filthy slab above to the trees.

(Although the block looks very precarious, for the time being it seems to be relatively stable. Using it is not advised. If it falls, it will almost certainly kill you. It will then hunt down your family and kill them too. Seriously, don't use it!)

Location

At the left end of the clean section of wall containing Chinese Writing and Revenge of the Jedi. Look for a gorgeous finger and hand crack that wanders up the face to the right of a right-facing corner. There is a large, long block lying at the top of the corner.

Protection

standard rack, takes stoppers well, continue up the filthy stuff above the block to slings and rings around a tree

Ha! The block. It's always looked dangerous, so Greg and Sporty actually took a car jack in there and tried to trundle it, succeeded in shifting it (!) but that's as far as it went. So, like the block on El Cap that people used as an anchor for decades and then nearly killed Skinner and Piana, it's probably fine until it isn't. That's why when they put up the variation where you stick strictly in the corner they called it Do You Want To Die. Jan 5, 2018
