Description Suggest change

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, while flakes and holds on the right prove most useful. The crux comes next with a hand traverse onto 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 climbing 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.
