Description

A surprisingly fun, steep, two pitch adventure! Perfect for a hot day or if the classics are already taken. Maybe it's not as good as G.O.D., Cat's Meow, or the Crack of Earthly Delights but it's next in line.

1) 5.9+ 125'
Starting just below the 3/4 gully saddle find a mossy ledge behind a tree. Aim for the short finger crack through a bulge at about 25' (crux). Easier terrain skirts around the roof above to the natural belay ledge.

2) 5.9+ 125'
Directly above the belay, take the parallel hand cracks to a bulge. Transition left underneath bulge into another crack system. Climb this wider crack to just beneath the summit. Traverse flake/rib to the right until possible to climb short face to the summit. Be sure to use long slings on this pitch.

Location

This is the continuous looking crack system on the N corner when viewed from the Picket Fence perspective. Rap from two new bolts with webbing and rap ring. 70m would barely make it. Another set of anchors will take you from the 3/4 gully back down to the packs.
