Description

Pitch 1: Climb gritty blocks (on the far left) onto the 15-foot-high shelf which runs along the base of the wall; crawl to the right until one is able the stand erect upon the shelf at the vertical offwidth crack. Belay here - you'll have rope drag if you don't!

Pitch 2: Ascend the offwidth above, which eases considerably after the hand-sized section. Belay your second from the top of the crack.

A direct start, "Crawl Direct," (5.8) is possible by climbing the gritty, dirty groove (bolt) beneath the upper crack.

Location

Leftmost obvious crack on the wall.

Protection

Standard Vedauwoo Rack (stoppers through #6 Camalot). Rappel 70 feet from anchors atop "The Bunny," just to the northeast.

A visionary route of Rob Kelman's. Gosh, this is a fun route, no matter how you do it. Besides, you can toprope "The Bunny" from the anchor. If do climb The Bunny, be sure to add your consensus rating of that route. Sep 21, 2012
