Description

Climb the nice thin hand crack up under the block in the alcove. Make a funky move around the chock boulder, and stand up on to the ledge. Move to the back of the ledge and look left you will see the light. Make a few chimney moves so you can see your exist then squeeze like a mother fucker towards the light hopefully you make it. Recommended to have a 30in waist or smaller.

Location

Just right of W2W.

Protection

This climb is different; Recommended pro is to carry a few cams sizes .25-#4 Maybe a #5. When you get in to the cave/ledge you may want to remove any additional gear because the squeeze is that thin. The second may want to toss the gear down before the squeeze.

This is certainly a very unique route. There are a few other climbs in NB that are similar to it but it reminded more of Tunnel Vision in Red Rocks. The first part of the route is pumpy with great movement and protects very well. Getting into the cave is also very cool. The cave itself is very narrow and anyone with a chest measuring more than 40 inches will have a difficult time getting through. Oct 7, 2016
