Description

A pretty sweet and steep crack that ends after 30' or so. The route then goes up and right on very crappy rock to sh*t anchor in more crappy rock.

The pure crack climbing on the lower half is actually really cool and unique for the highway but, unfortunately, the upper half is just so loose. It's easy but terrifying, even for the highway. I'd vote for an anchor after the crack ends even though the route would be pretty short. r and x rated the way it is imho... still worth doing though

Location

To the left and around the corner of Twinkle Toes is this attractive left leaning crack. Like the name advertises, it's right off the road.

Protection

Standard rack.

Climbed this route this summer. I second that it is gnarly up high, lots of chunks coming out as I touched them. Still, the lower bit is rad. The anchor is fine where it is, it keeps the weary away and preserves the "quality" of the route.

Is there still a PBR can half way up the route? We left it there in August, was still there as of mid December. hah! Jan 25, 2013

Anchor replaced April 2016. The old anchor was pulled under body weight.The new anchor is in much better rock just to the right. Needs a new PBR can ;) Apr 12, 2016
