Description [Suggest Change]

This is an interesting route that I thought was harder than it looks from the ground. It starts in an open book with hands and goes to fists to offwidth (a rib of rock is on the left of the crack and slabs are on the right). Climb behind a chockstone (not a tight fit at all), go easily a little higher and continue up and left to tackle a hand and finger crack to the anchor.

The route name and first ascent info were obtained from Kelman's guide to the area.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is on the southeast side of the crag. We approached by walking past Thing of Beauty and Medium Cool on the north side. Continue around the end of the crag and follow a trail that turns into easy spelunking under some boulders. You'll pop out from the tunnel right in front of the route.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard rack up to a #5 Camalot. An extra #4 Camalot wouldn't go unused. There's a bolted rappel anchor at the top. We were able to lower with a 70m rope. I'm not sure you could lower or rappel with a 60m rope.
