DescriptionLook for a large chockstone/roof to the right of Intertwine. Climb the open book below the chockstone/roof. The vertical crack leading to the roof looks like an ideal place for a cam, but it's not. The crack will eat your cam and or it will be a pain to remove. At the stance beneath the roof, place a #3 Camalot in the horizontal crack and a #1 Camalot in the right hand portion of the same crack. When you begin to climb into the offwith, there will be a nice hold for your left hand above your head. Use this hold to get yourself in a nice position to begin lay backing the crux. Continue lay backing until you can get yourself in the offwith.
You can either top out to the right or rappel from the chained anchor used on Intertwine.
Note: When climbing through the crux, make sure you keep the rope between your legs in the event you fall.
