Description

Super cool thin hands to fingers laybacking. A bit of spicy movement over a pin up near the top 2 raps climbers left with a single rope.

Protection

1-00, 3-0, Triples in yellow Alien through 0.75. 4#1, 2 #2s, 1 #3 (save for top, just past the knife blade). You can get an OK yellow or grey Alien in a pocket, below the knife blade.

Location

Just left of the broken up section in the cliff, down canyon from where the trail hits. The pinched off upper dihedral is visible from the ground.

Find the start of this line at a nice corner with a crumbly looking start heading up into hand crack. Its around the corner from the Monkey-Spank/Squoze area, easy to spot. The rock may look soft here, but its way better than that and gets quickly into bullet hard stone with spectacular movement. Highly recommended.

Make 2 raps down the west face of this wall on good bolted anchors. Also, another amazing pocket above knifeblade takes a .5 or .4 camalot. Look for it! Nov 2, 2015
