Description

Great route, recently cleaned. 5.8 hand crack leads to a crux finger crack section near top of route. Fun route!

Location

Approach from trail to Private Idaho, cairn marks the turn-off to the left. Trail is easy to miss.

Protection

Standard rack. You can get a #3 Camalot in down low, and finger size gear protects the crux (yellow TCU).

Rap from anchor.

Most needed protection might be DEET.

the top out was a bushy, dirty, mossy mess. Now cleaner as of Aug 2013. New sling on tree, but still needs anchor. Aug 20, 2013

Thanks Geoff.

I'm not sure about the mention of DEET in the description of "Protection". I've never noticed many bugs there, certainly no more than elsewhere. It might be a joke, a reference to the wall's name "Wall of 10,000 insects". Aug 21, 2013

I added the SS anchor with chains today, as well as shoveled off the top out again. did not have a brush with me so pretty dirty, May 22, 2014. Fun route! May 23, 2014

Getting into the finger crack was awkward and the crack seemed harder than 10a. Sep 26, 2016

Stiff for the grade, will feel 10+ for those with fat fingers. May 22, 2018
