Description

This is the dirty crack system which starts just a little down and left of Le Nocturne. The route starts just below a big rotting fallen tree trunk. You have a choice of two cracks to start: a squeeze chimney on the left, or a slot with thinner cracks on the right. Climb through a big oak tree and then up more dirty cracks. Near then end, make a traverse (5.8) up and right to a bolted anchor just above a pine.

Would be worth a star if it were clean.
