Description

Starts up in a small alcove to an obvious left leaning crack to the top. It is the first major crack right of TT Arete. If you can bear the sharp rock there are some solid opportunities for jams.

Location

Far right of Basilisk wall at the left most crack just right of TT Arete.

Protection

Standard rack, eats nuts. Great opportunity for a cordelette off the solid tree growing out of the crack directly above the route. Easy TR set up. Great for gumbos and kids.

Photos

Fun but pretty short 5.7. Feels a bit soft for the grade but now sure I would give it 5.6. Plenty of protections but will probably only use maybe 3 or 4 pieces. Jul 17, 2017

I don't know if I just missed something, but I didn't get good gear until where the climbers helmet is in the beta photo, and it was as much bomber gear as you could place after that.

Below that, I only found a placement for one small nut, and I definitely didn't want to be falling on it. You would almost certainly hit the ground if you blew it before getting a second piece in. But, it's easy and incredibly short so you won't fall. Dec 29, 2016

If the rock doesn't blow it's 5.6G. Dec 2, 2016
Nice climb. There is also one climb to the left and right, so you can get your full value out of setting up the TR. Nov 15, 2015
