Crux comes early on as you establish in the rattly hands section of the crack and the boulder to the right blocks you, causing extra awkwardness. Either stubbornly avoid the boulder to detriment of higher difficulty or use the offwidth between the boulder and the wall to jam your feet and arm bar. The slight overhang near the top, the questionable crispy holds there, and the bushy lichen in the shallow flare of that general region add flavor.

Needs some cleaning from traffic. For some (like me), the adventurous feel is magnetic and adds to it.


Slightly right leaning steep splitter near far right side of west face.


Gear to 4". For the top slightly overhanging section, don't trust a single piece. Save BD #2, 3, 4 for anchor crack.

Couldn't make selection to grade it as 9+/10a, but that grade may or may not be more fair. The conditions and a ground-up OS attempt without pre-inspection may have skewed my perception. Sep 15, 2014
