Description

An absolute blast of a route that heads through the splitter crack on the upper headwall. Sustained once out on the face. An absolute must if you can climb the grade.

Location

Obvious splitter crack heading up through an otherwise blank face.

Protection

Doubles from #.4-#1 Camalots with one large piece (I used a #3 Camalot but a #4 would allow for more safety) to protect the easy stuff at the bottom. Nuts could easily be placed but when I led it I stuck to cams to keep the pump down...

2 chain anchor up top.

Possibly one of my favorite single pitch trad climbs in MT. Pretty awesome. Jul 8, 2012

Excellent climb. Agree with the above statements. Definitely not .10d though. Aug 31, 2012
