DescriptionThe inviting looking offwidth/chimney in the corner to the right of the Bigfoot arete - Make use of the tree to start (or awkwardly avoid it if you really wish), then stem, layback and finally do a little chimneying where the crack widens into a pod. Finish up with some steep handjams, finger locks and laybacks up the final crack. Really nice stone, fun moves and well protected.
LocationLand of Cracks (lower tier, right of the big green gully), in the big corner just right of the landmark sharp arete of Bigfoot Was Here.
Protection5 bolts, red #1 Camalot, med and large wired stoppers. You could use the .3 and .4 gray and purple Camalots up high if you wish, but it eats the wired stoppers there, especially if you have a couple big aluminum offsets. Bolted anchor
No big gear needed unless you want to avoid the bolts, in which case you will need a few of the biggest sized BigBros, and a #6 cam near the bottom (which wouldn't protect you much really).
