Description

This is the left side of the obvious inset. Work your way up until you are under the roof. Find some pro and jam your way through the roof. Once you are above the roof, find some holds and struggle to the summit. Crux is jamming through the roof and moving up the slightly offwidth crack to the obvious flake. Protects well.

Location

Right of Glacier Calf Moo. Left crack or the obvious inset.

Protection

WIDE WIDE WIDE. Leave your nuts in your ruck sack and cast a large hex or two at this crack.

The Second Edition of Rock Climbing Minnesota and Wisconsin upped the rating on this from 5.7 to 5.9 and I wholeheartedly agree. The crux felt strenuous even at 5.9. Oct 30, 2017
