Description

Singer is justified in calling this one of the best 5.9 crack climbs in the SBs. It is a wonderful climb in a wonderful setting - nice and athletic with great moves up fine grained granite.

Work your way up the off width inside the flake, flakes and holds on the right prove most useful. The crux comes next with a hand traverse onto to a ledge on the left (very nice). Now follow the crack up over a couple of overlaps to the business. A splitter crack snakes it way up the face, but features to the left and good rest spots make this section a blast.

Finish up to the ledge in a flaring pod, which can be negotiated using face holds on either side.

Sit and ponder the expansive view while bringing up your second.

Location

Right facing lieback flake on the right side of the north face.

Protection

Standard rack of Friends #1 to #4. With a #5 at the start. Two bolt anchor - rappel off, 60m rope sufficient.
