This is a pretty good climb, stiff for the grade. The harder part is the lower seam of a crack.
If you are not well versed in thin cracks, you may want to TR this, pretty pumpy placing gear near crux start.


Starts just right of Preying Mantel. For both of these climbs it helps to start the belay on the ledges above the trail, but one could lead up from the trail as well.


mostly small gear and gradually widens to a chimney. You could end on the Preying Mantel anchor or top out on the Mesa above. It is a easy walk off to the left( west) to the 2nd gully.

Removed 2 large blocks that were obstructing the fist jam/mantle about 1/2 way up route..worthy climb, might put in a separate anchor soon for this one... Mar 8, 2018

Hi Oren, I always thought this was pretty good too. The last time I did it I attempted to continue all the way up the crack, it goes OW, but pretty easy, and gets really loose and dirty, so I made a run-out traverse over to Preying Mantel. If you were into cleaning out the upper portion, I think a new anchor is good, just don't think it should be too low. Mar 8, 2018
