Description

Be sure to get your mellow groove on before attempting this Spearfish Canyon classic. Depending on who you are, this might be the scariest ride of you life when the pockets end at roof with the perfect finger crack as your only means of escape. Guaranteed be the high point of your redpoint attempts.

Location

Shares the first few bolts with Peace Pipe. Traverse left and head for the blocky roof and a good ole' time.

Protection

Bring a dozen draws and some patience if you don't excell at finger cracks.

Amazing route - more original kind of moves than Peace Pipe and I actually enjoyed this one more, even though it gets 3 stars instead of 4 in the book. The roof/crack is amazing, the transfer to the left when leaving PP really adds a different dynamic as well, and the bottom are the same high quality pockets.

If you're in the area, it's totally worthwhile to do both regardless of your grade! Aug 4, 2017
