Description

This unfortunately named climb ascends the zig-zagging hand crack on the north side of the Petroleum Based Buttress. Start on thin face moves to gain the crack. A few strenuous jam and layback moves are required to gain a ledge. From here, cop out up a dirty crack to the left, or continue up the unprotected but easy arete to the anchors.

Location

This is to the left of and facing Building Blocks. It is the left-most of two cracks in the narrow face.

Protection

The crack takes excellent gear to about 1". Two bolts at top.

Fun little crack climb, good finger jams, a bit of a thin start. Oct 27, 2013
