DescriptionIntimidatingly vertical, sustained, and pumpy climbing on highly featured rock. This route is by no means pure crack, demanding some finger and hand jams, but also small pinches, side-pulling, and the occasional jugging. Hugely enjoyable from the low crux for the remaining 100 feet.
Climb up moderate terrain to a ledge (tree pictured in Lawyer & Haas 2014 no longer present), traverse right to guano covered alcove, then up and slightly left over bulge (crux) to start gradually easing but still vertical and pumpy climbing (5.8) straight to top. V1 (5.10b) skips traverse (and guano) and climbs up and slightly right to gain easing but vertical climbing.
