Description [Edit]

Excellent climbing up the obvious corner on the across from Crack Me Up wall. The start is marked by a section of tall grass.

Pitch 1: Follow the corner up for roughly 115 feet until you reach a small slab/ledge. There is gear on the right wall in an undercling crack (small - medium cams!). This is pretty much a hanging belay although with some effort you can get a good stance on the slab.

Pitch 2: Continue following the corner another 115 feet. Crux is the black/white stained section half way up the pitch. Towards the top you will come to an area with some marginal gear followed by a grassy topout. Resist the urge to create a belay - it's not great gear, it's really awkward, and there is great gear for an anchor at the top.

Generally excellent climbing on solid holds, sustained.

Location [Edit]

Immediately on your right after coming up through the small cave. Across from Crack Me Up Wall.

Protection [Edit]

Standard rack is adequate. Save at least two small/medium size cams for the first belay. Good gear all the way up, save for the grassy topout.
