Description

The crack immediately right of Quality Control Be Damned is a decent beginner trad lead, with ample opportunities for placing pro from good stemming stances. Start with the crack on either side of the block at the beginning. Good stemming and fun climbing in the middle. The crux is at a steeper section at the top with big holds. There was some rubble and looseness on this line, we cleaned some of it off, but it's still nothing close to immaculate.

If this type of 5.4-5.7 shorty trad climbs interests you, there are a few lines similar to this that can be found on the Upper Ledge of Gallows, just find a good one and go for it.

Protection

1 set nuts and cams to 3". Save some gear to build an anchor at the top, or use a static line to tie off a tree 30' back from the edge.
