Description

Start at a finger crack running under about a 10 foot overhang. Climb the crack with decent feet to the top of the overhang, then veer to the left and climb around a small arete. This crack will go up about 10 more feet before splitting in two, take the left crack for the easier variation (about a 5.8) and the right crack for the more difficult variation (5.9). The crux of the route is following the finger crack over the overhang. Try not to use the ledge of a boulder directly behind the top of the overhang, as it makes the route significantly easier. The purest ascent is sticking directly to the face.

Location

Walk south past the main face. Once you get to a point where you can look directly left and see what looks like a walk through under the rocks with a lot of bird shit, you're in front of the cracks. There is absolutely no chalk on the cracks, only lots of bird shit.

Protection

In the order it was used: #0.5 C4, #9 BD stopper, #1 C4, #3 C4, #8 BD stopper, #0.75 C4. Options for placing gear are plentiful, and anything from a 00 Mastercam to a #4 C4 will work wonderfully.

Is this climb the same as 'South OW', without any pictures it's hard to determine from the description, but they sound like they might be the same climb. Jul 17, 2017
