Two "cracks" (the left is hardly a crack per se) converge midway up the face into a single crack with finger pods in just the right places, though they may be protected by young roses. This crack continues past a pine-tree stump to a rounded top-out with a good hand jam. Horizontal / angling cracks exist where you need them.

Start on the lower left, move up to the left crack before getting into the dirty right crack. Follow the crack to the top. If the tree-stump isn't "on," it ought to be.


Walk along the base of The Mortuary past The Crypt and two closely-spaced bolted lines on an edge. Look for a beautiful blank slab, then an angled arête. Hatchet Job is just around the corner.


Small stoppers to #3 WC (#2 BD) with emphasis on finger-sized cams.

Fight past a bush at the top of the route to access the chains. You can TR the adjacent route, "The Undertaker" from here.
