Description [Edit]

The upper part looks like the crux but i found the 1st 10 feet to be much more strenuous...

Climb up in to the corner with a good deal of effort... Once you establish yourself up in the corner climb easier rock up to the final headwall... This section looked intimidating but with some careful route finding it didn't prove to be too bad... Crimps and funky quarts chunks lead to a ledge and the anchor...

Location [Edit]

This line stands out as one of the cleanest and most obvious lines on the crag.... look for a clean corner with a sweet thin finger crack in it and a steep bolted wall above...

Protection [Edit]

7 or 8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor (the new book has a typo, it says 4 bolts)...

So right about the start.
My friend pulled a huge fart in my face when he pulled the first move...
He had to use all the energy he had I guess! Jul 2, 2014
