Description

Any first time visitors eyes will be automatically drawn to this line. Two obvious holds are the only features on the 45 degree wall, the first boulder one encounters on the walk into Mt Gretna.

Not quite 45 degrees, this problem begs to be climbed. Begin on a sharp right hand undercling and the three finger pocket for the left hand. There is a large foot to start on. Heel or toe hook the ramp on the right and move up to the gorgeous slopers at the lip. It is possible to go with either hand. Topout on the Fabulous finishing rail. It will help if the conditions are sticky.

There is a great video of the first ascent on the 2001 film Hard Gret. Dynamic movement on finely grained slopers makes this a must do.

Location

Right of center on the 45 degree wall.

Matt the one to the left was orginially called char i think. then it broke, got resent, and was named f#$k char. Then it broke, and i think char sent it again, and might've renamed it something else, but then it broke again, and now is unsent i think. Nov 17, 2014

The description on this page is somewhat inaccurate. These days the top out does not go over to the Fabulous rail but goes straight up over the slopers. Some people trend way left to the better holds but I think the "proper" top out is, more or less, directly up. Nov 23, 2016
