DescriptionDifficult crux getting through the bulge. Tape up.
Climb up the bottom slab to an awkward stance below the bulge. Hand to fist jams and a few holds and sidepulls get through the crux. Step up and left to reach a left-facing corner. Climb up it, then move up and right onto the face. Follow the crack/seam as it diminishes, make a couple easy but runout slab moves to reach the top.
LocationThis route climbs the slab along a crack to reach the bulging fist/hand crack above. It comes up very close to the right end of the Ledge.
ProtectionStandard Adk. Rack. Consider doubling up on .7 to 2".
A #4 C4 and Tri-cams may help.
Unlike the majority of routes here, this route has no fixed anchors or convenient tree at the top. There is an excellent short, vertical 3/4" crack for setting a good gear anchor at the very top of the route; or optionally, to be used as a directional for an anchor off the large oak tree to climber's left.
