Description

Sit start by the tree to the right of the Iron Cross Crack on the large oval jug flake. Make the first few finger locks to establish on the undercling underneath the Iron Cross Crack flake.

Pull the crux through the obvious right facing sidepull on the face of the Iron Cross Crack flake to get to the start of Iron Cross. Finish as for Iron Cross.

Crux Tip: point your index finger like a gun as you grab the sidepull with the sharp spike between your middle and ring fingers, then curl your index so that it crimps the top of the hold.

Location

This route is an abbreviated version of Dream On starting halfway through the traverse and leaving the cruxy finger jams and sidepull moves.

The good crack for Iron Cross Crack is "off" since you stay below these holds for the entire route

Protection

2 pads as for Iron Cross

Looks good. The FA was probably Ward Smith from when he was working on Dream On. I don't remember anyone doing the sequence through the undercling before that. Aug 9, 2013
