Description

Use one of the main starts (the left side start creates a nice testy start) move to the middle of the large ledge. Climb the small crack that splits the face above the ledge to a blank section, continue up to a deeper larger crack farther up, and continue on up to the top.

Chose the start directly below the crack (left of the Jim's Throne starter crack). This section, I thought, was the sketchiest with pretty much no gear for 15+ feet that would keep you from decking. Once you reach the crack though, I found a good nut placement from the smaller ledge and then two great tricam placements a little further up. Definitely a little run out, but more PG-13 in my opinion. The crack was too shallow at first to really lock in, but there are plenty of tiny face features for your feet that make it reasonable for the grade. May 9, 2016

Tricky moves off the ground. The crack takes small finger-size cams just fine...also dropped a nut in there somewhere. After that though it is runout. Be solid at the grade. Jul 20, 2015

This line should be called Shallow Crack because it's a crack really in name only.

If you're breaking into the grade, this route is NOT for you because it's severely run out and the few pro placements near the crack are for psychological purposes.

Found out that a bolt was chopped in the recent bolt wars.

Build an anchor at the top. Scramble over and down to the right to the newly installed metolius rap hangars (as of 12/21/13). Dec 22, 2013

the finger crack is worth it... just don't stop moving. Put a finger in and focus on your feet. Crux is probably getting off the ground. Jul 22, 2013
