DescriptionStart in the very easy (5.4) crack system below the flake, which takes good gear but honestly isn't needed. Once you reach the flake, pull into the offwidth between the flake and the wall (5.7). Climb the easy but fun offwidth to the top (5.6) for the last 15 feet. This is a great solo, but it can also be led to practice some gear placements. This takes great gear from a #3 to #5 Camalot. The whole route can be done with a #3 and #4/5 very easily.
If you set up a top rope, there is a fun 5.8+ variation of the bottom of the climb. Climb the steep, fairly blank face to the left of the easy crack system at the bottom up until the offwidth.
