Grunt, cuss, bleed and scream your way up the notorious 8" crack. The crux comes in the overhanging section after a near complete rest at a ledge. After getting savage on the overhanging section, the route eases only slightly when the crack becomes vertical. It ain't over till you pull over on top and are fighting back urges to puke. Have fun.


The impressive wide crack seen as you approach.


Gear to 8" Two shiny bolts on top to rig a top rope.

A TR ascent is certainly a valid ascent. Congratulations on that.

I tried it on TR back in the late 70s and failed.

But if you want the excitement of a lead, but don't have the pro, then have your TR belayer take in the rope at only a few designated spots. Simulated lead, but make sure the rope passes safely over the top without the potential of getting cut. Nov 10, 2016
Top roped it clean on took a few tries i kept popping out once. Really cool OW practice. Pretty fun if you like abuse lol

I'd really like to try the lead, anyone know what kinda gear you need I think a 6 may be too small! big bros only? Nov 10, 2016
