Description [Edit]

Climb up the short block to the heather ledge and gain the crack. Follow the wide crack to a tree and step left to a good stance beneath the thin crack up the face. Climb this nice crack to the top.

Upper crack is somewhat sustained, but protects well with .5-1 (BD) cams. On the harder edge of 5.10a but very nice climbing (UK rating is E1 5b and Mtn Prj doesn't translate UK grades well).

Location [Edit]

On the Victory Slab, left of the much taller Salamander Slab.

Protection [Edit]

nuts and cams to 3". Doubles of .5 to 1 (BD) cams would be useful.

Fixed anchor up and left of the top out can be used to rappel with two ropes. Otherwise, walk-off to climbers left, down the slope and back around.
