Description

Climb up and right on the slab below the wall, starting just right of the anchors atop the original first pitch of Sucking Wind. If you're belaying from the anchors on the Railroad Tracks Cracks, you'll want to back clean any gear you place on the slab or use really, really long slings.

After climbing the slab, you'll find yourself underneath the finger-sized splitter of Victory Bowl. Hard, committing moves directly above the slab lead to more splitter finger crack and a roof at the top before the ledge with a two bolt anchor shared with Peapod.

Location

Climbs the finger-sized splitter on the face of the Upper Tier, the wall directly above the Railroad Tracks Cracks.

Protection

Gear to 2 inches with extras in the finger sizes.
