She can be tamed...

A powerful, technical line of slopers on clean solid rock with a good landing. Beginners may struggle with this one.

Start on an obvious "launch pad" grab some crimps and stand up onto a small edge. Now the fun begins, layback right onto slopers then swing under the overhang. Move right utilizing a range of techniques (Knee Bar), with few options for feet. Grab the arete get some feet then move around the arete. Reposition hands and feet, stand up then mantel up to the cleaned face above to top out.

...But doesn't give it up easily!

Descend via Beginners Layback


From the main trail turn left at Wide Crack this route climbs the rail atop a prominent overhang just right of Beginners Layback. Alternatively from the western most entrance to blackjack this is the first route that can be seen on the right.
