Description

This is a unique and excellent pitch. Start in a scooped out section of rock on a ledge. Boulder through the steep first section to gain a wrapper jug over the lip. There is a jet black, HARD TO SEE mail slot pocket a little bit below the big jug that may make this section more enjoyable.

After the initial jolt, follow shallow pockets and finger buckets to the break. From there, enjoy the steep, long moves through a series of huecos. Though not all that consistent in grade, this is a pretty classic Dacite pitch.

Good to see you guys as always. Like the Peaks Crag, these lines should just get better and better with more traffic. And the view is kinda mesmerizing.... Jan 2, 2014
