This route can be found approximately 300 feet climbers right of Greatest Show. Find the bright orange splitter corner leading into an obvious crack.

Do a few face moves, establish into the corner and get ready for meat and potatoes crack climbing for the next 40 feet. Mostly hands (i used 1 fist) and body english will get you to the top.

This thing is pretty pure crack climbing (especially for the NRG region). Really good. Probably only Yosemite 5.8 but who cares.

The only thing that makes this not worth doing is the absence of anchors. Hopefully, I'll get around to fixing this soon. Maybe even add a bolted extension on it. But as of Dec. 3, 2014 there are no anchors. Bail left.


1000 feet right of Greatest Show.


A good selection of cams from #3 BD to #.5 BD will keep you safe and happy.
