Start on the big flake and do really fun and easy climbing to a jug below the huge pod. Pull into the pod and place your first piece. Enjoy a solid no hands rest and then get into the big undercling and charge up the layback section that ends with solid hands. A really fun climb and a must do.


The dihedral corner crack to the left of False Determination.


Big gear for the pod (6). Small gear for the initial layback section then good hand sized pieces. Anchor I used a 4, 3, and 2.

[Hide Comment] Be careful in the pod as there is lots of rotten rock in there. Saw someone nearly fall out a few weeks back and pulled out 20+lbs of it trying to stay in. Also if you place at the top of the inside of the pod make sure to extend that piece to avoid getting the rope pinched in the start of the layback. Dec 3, 2017

[Hide Comment] Or you could place a piece in the crack just above the pod, clip into it and then remove the piece you placed in the pod and then proceed upwards. Jul 15, 2018
