Description [Edit]

Start up the thin shallow cracks. You get some good small gear at the tops of these cracks.

With the gear placed launch out on a lonely lead, since the gear will only protect the first 40 feet of climbing.

Small crimps and shallow cracks lead up and over a small overlap then more crimping continues on up directly to the crux moves 6 feet below the niche. Its only 6 feet, but it has the potential of feeling longer than that...

Location [Edit]

Middle of the wall to the left of the cave

Protection [Edit]

It is possible to safely top rope this from the niche belay. Otherwise bring some RPs, HBs and a bottle of courage

After a complete trauma on lead, I backed off and TR'd the climb first. Great moves but very serious climbing. Feb 23, 2010
