Description

The crux right off the deck at a hueco and is well protected by the first bolt. The moves to get past this hueco (for me) were pretty dynamic and bouldery. Just go for it, it is well protected. Everything above the hueco is moderate in comparison.

Location

Right of Left Flank.

Notably harder (probably closer to the given grade) for shorter climbers unable to reach the good left hand hold at the crux bulge. Apr 19, 2010

Midway in the Southern California Guide to Sport Climbing is the climb to the right of this one - the one that starts to the left of the dirty chimney. I think this climb is "make a way" rated at 5.10a. The moves on Midway were much more sustained than this climb; this climb has really just the lower crux, which I would rate at 5.10a/b. The moves at the crux are very sequential, and if you get the sequence wrong could make the climb seem harder... Once you figure out the sequence, the bottom crux isn't too hard (solid 5.10 a/b), and very well protected. Lead both climbs. Aug 22, 2011

I HAD to climb this, if nothing else, due to the fact that I was stationed on the USS Midway (CV-41) in the late 80's/early 90's. Dec 11, 2012
