Description40 foot straight in finger crack in left facing corner, when the left wall of the corner slabs out, follow the finger crack straight up a vertical wall, mantle to a two bolt anchor.
STELLAR SINGLE PITCH ROUTE!!!!!. When I did this pitch in 2004 it was pretty clean, the pitches above ( 9+,9,5.ROTTEN!)looked like the womb of the devil herself (we bailed). The first pitch however is STELLAR, I cant stress it enough. The two bolt anchor at the top of pitch 1 is quarter inch leepers, they are junk and I backed them up with a nut (fixed). If you are in the area (rainbow slabs) its worth the hike up hill to climb it.
LocationPainted Walls, Locate Windjammer (very obvious hanging "v" chimney/stembox) and walk right until you see the obvious splitter finger crack.
