Description

Start off battling an awkward bulge. Then work those knee bars, heel-toes, and chicken wings as you slither and grovel up the OW until it finally lowers angle. Features on the left wall allow for good rests. I brought two 6" pieces and bumped one up to use for the anchor.

Location

The obvious wide crack in a right-facing corner in the middle of the northwest face. Walk off the southeast side.

Protection

4"-6", if you belay at the first big ledge the anchor takes 2"-6"

Rick is a bad ass.

It felt a little harder than championship wrestling for being the same grade.

Bring a cordelette or other long slings for anchor, there is a tunnel-through you can sling and dont need a 6 for the anchor, other big cams are useful too. Dec 10, 2014
