If you enjoyed such classics as Baba Cool, Meat is Murder, and Goldberry Lane, be sure not to miss this Yahne classic. Ron put this up over the course of two years on lead from free stances, and even took a few whippers with power drill in hand. Yet another Yahne masterpiece!

Start 20 feet right of Classic Crack. Clip the first bolt close to the ground and make some tenuous moves to get established on the face. A small cam is nice to have between bolts 2 and 3.

After clipping the third bolt, prepare yourself for a thin section that trends left through the next four bolts. After clipping the last bolt just below the final crack, catch a well-deserved rest, then jam your way to the chain anchor.

Once on the summit, look toward Outer Outlet for a perfect view of the stunning and unmistakable Nick of Time.


Located on the N face, 20 feet right of the prominent Classic Crack.


7 bolts, light rack to 2"
