Description

Climb steep wide crack with bush at the bottom that has a groove on the left side that makes a nice stem box.

Location

Route is on the West side of a pillar that is up against the face of Prince that is facing Loeber's Leap. Rap off knob on the opposite side of the spire between Prince and the Pauper

Protection

A fair bit of wide gear is nice.

Just made up a name yesterday as I figured it was unclimbed due to the large bush and loose rock. Reggie and I cleaned it up a bit and I think it would be very good if cleaned up a little more. Obviously feel free to rename. How did you descend? Sep 4, 2013

Hey Mike,
Glad you added this because we had no idea what it was. It was very dirty and crumbly when I climbed it. If the crack was cleaned more it would be a good climb for sure. I felt 5.6-5.7. There is a solid crack that is one of the coolest in the area and some really good other climbs over and down by the Fist? that I'm not sure the FA or info on. Any who I really don't have any intentions of returning to the area. I'm not returning because of quality but of how much rock IS OVER THERE. I feel I do more looking/ hiking then climbing when I hike to Loepers. Cheers! Sep 5, 2013
