Climb out the awesome, severly overhanging, right-diagonaling hand/ finger crack, utilizing the arete at the lip. Continuous crack climbing all the way to the lip.


Located on the west face of the Back Porch formation.


Gear to #3.5 Friend.

Gear climbing doesn't get much more fun and gymnastic than this. A crack-climber's TGV. Jul 3, 2010

There were two nuts with two biners fixed at the lip of the route (by the old Star Drive). I don't know if it was a top rope anchor or a bail anchor, but I took them out and left them on the first ledge of the route - if you want them back. Aug 17, 2013

If you turn the roof & then go up & right a bit, there is a 2 bolt anchor. Wouldn't help you back clean all the gear on the route, but at least the route concludes at a logical point/stance. Aug 20, 2013

Some fun climbing to be had on this thing. Definitely easier than TGV, but maybe I'm just more inclined to jamming splitters than pulling on face holds. Jan 29, 2018
