This ascends the wide crack/arête that separates the Savin Slabs from the Savin Face. Step in the wide crack formed between the lower block and Savin Face, and pull on holds on the "inner arête" of the lower block. Make a reach while you are standing on top of the lower block to crank past the wide, flaring crack (crux); this is where the route steepens. Only a few hand jams will work in the crack feature nearer to the top. This isn't a real crack climb, since face and arête holds are used on either side of this crack-a-ma-thing.


At the Big Savin crag, look for the crack separating the Savin Slabs from Savin Face. This and "Big Savin Face" are the tallest routes at Savin Hill.


Toprope from a bolted anchor (several trails lead to the top). This can go on lead (PG-13), but few (and sketchy) gear placements make this a tough go for such an easy grade. If you blow the crux move, an awkward/painful landing on the lower block awaits you.
