DescriptionA hard and exposed line taking the direct route up a wild face of rock with two distinct cruxes.
Begin in the corner as for Skeleton Crack below the gently overhanging face. Work up and left on a beautiful undercling feature (.75 cam protects). Business starts early when the crack runs out forcing you to work up on a painful left crimp and make a desperate series of moves to surmount the first lip. Gain a no-hands stance before committing to the long line of bolts through a series of various overhangs with incut holds. One more no hands stance can be negotiated before another tough crux on hidden holds and a final technical sequence guards the final ledge and a two bolt anchor.
The initial crux sequence can be avoided by leading the first 20 ft. of Skeleton Crack and traversing left. The rating would be about 11a.
