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.

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

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

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