Description

Climb up the good crack with the starting feet cut back into the cliff. Work your way into the corner and mantle up onto the big block. Top out by climbing up and right through a slanting dihedral that gets dirtier towards the top.

Spectacular variation breaks left once you mount the block. Thin traverse with very thin feet into a small corner. Turn the corner left onto a wider crack that is part of a roof that juts out into space. Mantle up and into a crack that runs to the top. This was recently cleaned July of 2013, and I encourage anyone to try it.

Location

Starts in a left facing corner at the crack below the obvious big block. The spacious three bolt anchor at the top will work for this climb.
