Description

This route has 2 distinct cruxes, with easier climbing at the start and finish. After you figure out the 1 move trickery about midway, there is a good rest on a ledge before tackling the steep crack above. Most of the jams are very positive with only one short sketchy section.

Location

This is located on the Minion Wall, just left of the Main Wall. Look for a slab start, leading to a 15' tall offset seam, then into a hands/fists crack.

Protection

8 bolts & gear to 2.5". There are anchors before you enter the upper crack, or continue to another anchor at the top of the crack for full value.

The upper part crack seems to be solid 10a at least. The rating for hand crack is subjective to the climber's hand size though. I'd carry double of 0.5, 0.75, #2, and #3 Camalot. Aug 14, 2017

Just climbed this yesterday, and what a great crack. I only followed, and man it was pumpy! Curious as to what people would rate just the crack? Personally I would say 5.10b / 5.10b+? It kind of confuses me to rate a route that is half sport/face climbing and half crack. The face climbing certainly has the few 5.10d moves around the fifth bolt, but not sure the crack would be that rating. Jun 20, 2015

The seam is okay (kind of weird), but the crack above is pure joy. If that crack were longer, it would be 4 stars. Aug 30, 2013
