Description

This was led ground up. It is a super fun, varied, finger crack with some face moves. The middle is tricky.

Location

15 feet right of Land Shark, where the cliff drops a little. The route is way right, just left of the SS Minnow (rightmost, prominent chimney). There's a little boulder to start off of.

Protection

Cams from smallest Alien up to #0.75 Camalot. Bolted chain anchor.

I think I did this with Mike Cichon the other day. Great climb, short but sweet. Nov 28, 2009

The gear on this route is a little weird at the crux...there is a good yellow Alien off the ground to keep you safe for the fun opening moves. The gear at the crux (yellow Alien back in the flare) is a little more on the bodyweight friendly side...don't take the entire flare up with a larger cam or the move will seem much harder. Like most of the gear routes at the East Quarry, I would be very leary of taking big falls on the marginal placements.... Nov 30, 2010

Followed this route yesterday with Mike C on lead. He led it easily. It's a sustained finger crack with some marginal gear placements. I had trouble in the middle of this route but eventually worked through it. Fun and challenging. Dec 12, 2010
