Description

The guidebook calls this the "junior version of Cream". While it's definitely shorter, I thought it was just as burly. Just past Cream is another large corner system with a splitter up the face to the right of this. The climb starts with hand jams and widens to squeeze chimney. The crux is a 4.5" in section below the ledge in the middle. I'm pretty sure it's best done as a lieback. Above the ledge the crack is wider and much more difficult to protect with conventional gear. There are a couple places for a super tipped-out #6 Camalot in constrictions, but you will need big bros or valley giants to adequately protect the upper 40' of the climb. Larger people will feel especially exposed at an "S-curve" high on the route. The anchor is a couple rusty 3/8" bolts.
