Description Suggest change

Double hand cracks at the start, but you'll use only one of them. Do you jam straight through or punch the lie back to its end? After the hands portion mosey on up a lower angle section to a testy finger crack section with sub par rock. Step right, and follow easy rock to the finishing corner.

Finish option B is to step across the chimney, and belay at Ace-Drizzle's 1st pitch anchor.

Location Suggest change

Start in an alcove 100ft up from the beginning of Riveting. The hand crack will be obvious.

Protection Suggest change

Standard LCC rack to 4". Rap off 1 bolt equalized with a fixed nut.
