Description [Suggest Change]
This route is an underrated gem overshadowed by its famous neighbor Crooked Cross. The climb is good, and by the standards of the new SSV book, is worthy of two stars. There is good variety, a tricky roof section, and finger jams to hand crack. This is normally broken into two pitches, but it could be done as one long one if slings are used prudently.
Location [Suggest Change]
Climb the first pitch of Crooked Cross, but head right to the obvious, west-facing finger to hand crack that passes a small roof early on.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Standard rack including 0.5-3" cams. The sling wad belay mentioned in Gillett's book is now gone.
