Description

Steep crack, corner, roof, bulges, and a wild move at an overhanging corner. Rock is not 100% but the solid pro can be found all the way up. The final moves are as fun as it gets. If you don't want to do the hard finish work right to a fun 5.7 chimney that doesn't climb like one.

Location

To the right of the big overhang you first encounter is a crack/flake that curves right at a roof. above are two cracks this takes the left one. A bolted corner is just right of the start of this climb.

Protection

Trad rack with doubles up to yellow Camalot. A blue might help getting to the chains after the bolt. I save both reds for the upper half of the climb.

this climb will surprise you with its quality. it's very consistant in difficulty until the ending crux, takes great gear, and the finish is just wild and fun. it's worth bringing a light rack down to the wall to do this route alone, more so if you do the other mixed lines here.

i used singles to #3 camalot and stoppers and had plenty of solid gear the whole way.

easy 5.10 until the final crux (11-), which is protected by a bolt. Jul 25, 2010

agree with geir, easy 10 till the crux and it climbs a lot better than it looks. most of the flake/crack is surprisingly solid and gobbles nuts in addition to some good cam placements. it's a pity the middle part is so crappy otherwise this might be a 4-star route. Jun 28, 2015

I'd like to give it 4 stars but I can't. Lil bit of suspect rock and a mediocre middle. Bottom section is 10a/b and super fun. I use a rack from .3-2 with an extra purple and red. Crux moves at the bolt are a hoot. I love this route. And marcys. Great warm ups for the lower if you can stand a few moves of 11 Jul 23, 2015
