Description [Suggest Change]

A straight-up, vertical layback crack in a shallow corner. It starts with a few fist jams, but quickly narrows to fingers. Relatively short (~40-50 feet), but quite sustained.

Location [Suggest Change]

Access to this route takes one to the top anchor.

Take the trail along the base of the wall. After the first rope ladder, and before the second, walk right to the obvious ledge with the two-bolt anchor right above the point where the crack reaches the ledge. Lower down from here to the large treed ledge.

Protection [Suggest Change]

It is so conveniently set for a top-rope, it is hard to imagine a reason for leading it. But if you insist on leading, take a cam or two for a fist-size crack and then an assortment of finger-sized gear for a finger crack (perhaps one hand-sized cam would help).
