Description

A short and steep tips to finger crack. A bouldery sequence at the start leads to burly crack moves. Its not a long pitch, but there is no resting on this hog! Fist discovered and aided by Erik Kelly. My apologies if I have placed this route in the wrong area

Location

Getting to this crack sucks. There is no trail and its way up at the top of the mountain. To make things worse, there is a couple hundred feet of exposed 4th class bushwhacking to get to the base. See approach photo

Protection

From micro nuts/ ball nuts to .75 camalot. protects safely, but the gear is strenuous to place.
