DescriptionThis route is the most prominent feature at the small crag. It begins with a few stout, sequence-intensive hand jams and finger locks through a slightly overhung, right-leaning section before pulling over a bulge and into a straight-up fist-to-OW crack. The climbing eases significantly as the crack enters the dihedral; the route ends by topping out.
ProtectionLarger gear is strongly recommended (up to WC #4 or BD #3 or 4) for the upper 2/3 of the route. Fat hands, some nuts, and a small cam help with the bottom, overhung section. A variety of placements will serve for anchor building at the top.
There is a large rock below the start of this route, so watch your ankles if you come off at the beginning.
