Description

This is a fun problem starting on the left side following the crack that goes up and to the right. Start with two hands and work your way over, you end up bumping a right hand up then a dead point to the black ledge.

Protection

Pads and at least one spotter.

There are a couple different variations you can do on this one. Topping out way right makes the topout much more difficult. Or, make one or two moves on the rail, then go straight up to a white incut rail, then to a small crimp on the vertical headwall, then up to the ledge. A little easier, but very fun.

The easiest walk off is by climbing ABOVE the tree, walking to the right over the tree, then down. Nov 26, 2009

Joe, I have seen more than one chunk of that white rail come off so I avoid that whole white band. Dec 11, 2009
