Illinois > Draper's Bluff > Rubik's Cube

Description

This is a seldom done trad line at Draper's, but it is fantastic. The crux short 15'..but burly. The top is a little scary and one move is protected by a manky rusted piton.

Location

Right of Shame. Look for a left facing dihedral with a roof. Often wet ground at the base. The route still has the remains of a large honey bee hive.

Protection

Small sized to #3 camalot.
