Description

Boulder up the powerful overhanging opening moves to some finger jugs at the base of the crack. Do a couple jam moves and mantle up on a small ledge. Only a few more face moves separate you from the top. Walk off.

Location

At left end of Practice Wall, just left of Skunkpie. It is the only crack.

Protection

NC trad, cams up to 3 Camalot.

There are also anchor rings up top for TR.

If you climb on TR, watch your back if you fall at the bottom 3rd of the route. You are likely to hit the tree behind you. Apr 25, 2011

The lower part of this climb is some of the funkiest 5.10 climbing. The crack flares and constricts. It's edges are polished. The upper half is more enjoyable. Certainly, a Crowders Mountain classic. May 29, 2011

A red C3 protects the moves above the mantle. Look for a funky pod in the horizontal seam at head level as you are standing on the mantle ledge. This should give you confidence as you step out right. Jun 16, 2012
Warning, I was on this route July 5 2014 and it seems like somebody has put sap on good holds, they are extremely slick and polished now. They weren't like this a month ago. Ended up rupturing both flexors trying to push through it. Jul 9, 2014
