Description

This was first led ground up aid/free. There are a few tricky moves in the beginning, middle, and end. There is no bolt anchor at the top, but a gear anchor can be constructed. It is a natural, thin-crack system with some tricky protection.

Location

The route lies directly between the two sport routes on the far left side of the quarry. It follows an arching, thin finger/layback crack to a low-angle seam, reaching a ledge to a short dirty corner. It is a fun and exciting trad route, easy but a little scary (I wore my helmet).

Protection

The gear is there, just a little tricky and on the small side. A little runout in the middle. If you get scared don't worry; you can clip the bolts two feet to the left on Pinkerton (3 if you like). Walk off or rap one of the anchors on the sport routes.
