Description

Pitch one of this three pitch route is a stellar 80 ft. of high quality, clean cut, lieback offwidth. The crux of which is up high where the crack bulges and veers right(.10a). Although avoiding the pump is probably the real crux.

Location

This climb is in the middle of This and That cliff. To the right and uphill from the big arch, or left and down from Cramming. Look for a short, right facing, dirty, 3rd class ramp/corner with a nice grassy ledge on top. A wonderful place to be an a sunny winter day! Look for the right facing four inch crack.

Rappel the route with one 60m rope from slings around a tree/bushes. Bring a leaver sling just in case.

If you've climbed the other pitches, please describe them in the comment thread below.

Protection

Get through the last 15ft. of this climb with one finger size piece and an off-finger piece. The rest of this climb takes nothing but large cams. Bring at least three #4 camalots, two #5 friends, and a #6 friend. One tipped out #4 friend can be placed off the ground for piece of mind. The belay off the ledge also takes #4 camalots if you've got them, otherwise, count on the first piece of pro being the belay piece.
