Go up past horizontal cracks and a bulge (crux; a bit height related) then up and left to an obvious off-width crack. Squirm up the crack to a ledge.


Start eight feet left of My Best Work is Done in the Dark and directly behind a large boulder.


Carry gear up to the largest Camalot.

Nice and shady during the winter months. Ramp below first bolt is very brittle but easy. The bulge crux climbs like a 10 when fingers are numb. OW is a fun lil section. Would like to make it back in warmer temps next time. Jan 16, 2017
