Description

Slightly thuggy with a touch of sharp rock.
Start on the right side of the Caught up in the Air "ledge" at a beautiful left facing crack/corner. Climb the clean corner to a stance at the roof leading to the arch feature. Get in a big piece and finagle your way over the roof into the arch past some questionable rock and a few jams. Get a big piece and jam and layoff the arch to a stance at the end of the feature. Exit left here to the Caught Up anchor or climb to the top of the cliff in one long pitch passing old bolts with gear and new upgraded bolts to the top. Was done originally in two pitches with a one bolt anchor.

Location

In between Caught up in the Air and Wyoming Dick.
Rap the route with two 60m ropes.

Protection

Standard NC Rack up to a #4 BD Camalot.

this is a much overlooked gem. Rock quality is fine albeit gritty. Do it in one pitch for good times. Tops at a ratty sling on a pine tree. Traverse 30 ft left to rap off Caught Up In The Air ( anchors may be hiding behind a small little tree but they are there) May 27, 2013

Really great route. Definitely different than your typical Cedar Rock routes. I recommend taping your hands! I exited left to the P1 anchors of Caught Up In The Air which was fun for cragging, I but would like to go back and finish it to the top. Nov 10, 2015
This route is a glorious, rare splitter in a sea of slab. It protects phenomenally. Only one thing to be aware of: the entire length of crack, at least in the winter, is FULL of Asian Beetles. You can still gently jam, but if you're not in the mood for a shower of bugs or if you have baseball mitts for hands, save this route for spring. Feb 23, 2017
