DescriptionSome nice movement here...slammer hand jams down low, then some techy crimping, and then pleasant face climbing above the crux.
Follow the hand crack up and left to some horizontals and a pretty suspect looking knifeblade. This can be backed up with several small cams directly adjacent, and more in the horizontals just below if you wanted. A couple of tough moves off crimps up the shallow left-facing corner follow, and if you lead this (we didn't) your gear will be at or below your feet when you latch the good holds. Easier (8ish?) climbing follows above that, and then you can either step right around the corner or follow the left-hand edge of the block. Maybe the center of the block was the original route, but there's a lot of lichen there now. The upper section seems like it might not have the best pro. I think people usually TR this...if they do it at all!
LocationAt a crack on an overhanging face about 15 feet right of Rhododendron and right next to Das Wiggles.
