Description

Difficult start. begin by scrambling up and left of the first pitch of pinhead. Starting under a triangle shaped pod, go up trending slightly right until you reach good ledges next to the perfect left arcing hand crack. climbing up through this section is possibly made easier by an old piton scar.
After the tricky bottom section, work left toward the amazing arcing hand crack (probably the coolest crack on the swamp slabs).

- continue up the top of debut or scramble over to treebeard, or just scramble all the way left and back down to the base.

Location

Swamp slabs. Left of pinhead and greenhorns.

Protection

Small gear and stoppers for the bottom. Blue alien and a purple mastercam protect the crux. Hand size gear for the top.

A very sweet climb with quality rock and some really interesting climbing. The crux is a unique set of stemming moves on vertically oriented dime edges.

Used to protect the crux with a perfect hand place lost arrow. Apr 25, 2017
