Description

This is a steep, left leaning finger crack that packs a lot of punch for its length. It's often toproped, less-frequently led, and just a bit too high to be a boulder problem.

Location

On a boulder, off the stream bed nature trail, to the left if walking up-canyon.

Protection

hands, then quickly goes to less than tips. Hands-sized gear for the anchor.

Wild Guess: FA Dick Cilley, full name, Dominatrix Without Mercy Jun 7, 2009
Bing Bing Bing, Russ scores another one.

I believe Dick had the FA on TR although it might have been in company of BM. Not really Bob's kinda thing though. Jun 9, 2009

thanks for the info on this, everybody. I got on it randomly a few years ago, and the only beta I had was the name and grade of the climb on a printed out bouldering guide. I'm surprised that it wasn't in this database already.

Speaking of the Skinner comment, I do remember one of the memorials for him in one of the mags mentioned him getting the FA of "Dominatrix Without Mercy" at Cochise, which they listed as 12c! Is this the same route?

And, it might be seventeen feet high, but given that the crack is left leaning and steep, it's got a bit more climbing than 17 feet. You're right, though, probably not 35. Jul 11, 2009
