DescriptionThis ascends the tallest face of Big Savin. Start on the lower block (with feet 1/4 the way up this block) to reach a slanting rail, which consists of some slopers and a few hidden crimpers. Crank on this rail feature, and move your feet up on tiny edges. Search for some two-finger pockets and nubbins at the crease (strenuous & delicate crux) that separates the vertical face from the slabby finish. Pulling your feet onto the slabby finish is surprising tough. Boston Rocks lists this as 5.7 (the added "+" means this is sandbagged). It is a pumpy, short route that requires some technique - not ideal for newbies.
LocationThis ascends the tallest face on Big Savin. The route is right of the large crack that separates the Savin Slabs from the steeper stuff. Look for the slanting rail feature on the vertical face.
