Description

Pitch 1: Climb a series of discontinuous cracks that start on the far right side of the slab. Clip 3 bolts as the cracks end (10+). Optional hanging belay out left with bolt + gear.

Pitch 2: Take cracks out right to top.

Location

This line is on the large, mostly unbroken slab that constitutes the right section. The line sits on the far right side of the slab, just before the blocky cracks of Grody Coyote.

Great climb, a bit spicy, classic GM route. Oct 13, 2009

I agree, a great climb. Some really cool moves through the sustained crux. One of my favorites on the right section. Watch out for the large mostly detached flake by the discontinuous cracks. Oct 20, 2009
I have traversed all the way to the Bleak Streak ledge when the upper crack exit was wet and icy. You can clip the top bolt on Cactus Picker en route. Scary leading or following. Nov 30, 2009

Great route. Can be done in one pitch with a 70 as long as last bolt is extended. Sep 26, 2012
What a route. I was happy and sad to finally clip that first bolt. Happy to be done with all the thin gear and strange climbing below and sad when I saw the spacing of the bolts and the blankness of the face that wandered above. We split the pitch in two and the belay was comfy. Jan 16, 2018
