Description

A short steep pillar lead to an easy ramp where you can catch your breath and clip a couple fixed pins. Set your tools and work your feet up as you torque and hook your way out of this one. All of the moves are manageable if hard, the top out is the crux. There used to be frozen turf to hook but that is since long gone. Try it a few times and you'll figure it out.

Location

Left side of the rock butress in the middle of the crag. A 20 foot curtain lead to an overhanging finger crack.

Protection

a few small cams, nuts and maybe #1 or #2 for the top. Screws and draws.

The pins on this route are junk. One pulled on me last year, I don't remember if I replaced it or just used nuts. The crack takes good pro, but I think I remember being glad to clip the first one on the top of the ice. Needs a little tlc. Dec 24, 2011
