Description

Begin on the far left side of Squirrelhide Crag. Look for an architecturally perfect inset dihedral about 80 feet off of the ground. Pitch one (short) leads up to the corner following a 5.7 crack with a log jammed in about 30 feet up. We tried to trundle the log, but it won't budge. There are two hand drilled bolts on the ledge to belay from.

Pitch two is the money. Follow a perfect hand/fist crack up for about 35 meters until it is possible to belay at a small tree out left. From here, take another short pitch to the top following a nondescript chimney/offwidth.

From here, it is possible to walk off to the left.

Location

On the far left side of Squirrelhide Crag, you can't miss it.

Protection

Doubles to #3 Camalot works great.

The wide crack immediately left of the first pitch on Sidescraper can be toproped also, at about 5.8. It is pretty friable though and, unfortunately, not recommended. Oct 5, 2015
