Description

I almost had to ask Mr. Wizard for help......almost.

Another great Shortoff classic! Climb the juggy face up to the crack. Clip an old pin and crank the burly/bouldery moves to a great stance and better gear. Finish up a wonderfully sustained and steep 5.8+ crack to a comfy belay ledge. Belay on natural gear.

To get off, you can finish on Maginot Line or Big Arete.

Location

Starts right of Maginot Line about 30 ft, beneath a steep face with a crack.

Protection

small to medium hybid cams, small to medium nuts, camalots .4 to 3(double .5 to 1 helpful but not neccessary), black tricam for the starting move to the jug, belay takes small to medium tcus
