Start on the right of the slab and follow the obvious crack that trends left. After clipping the one pin, continue left a couple moves then straight up a finger crack to chains.


Small to #1 Camalot, emPHAsis on the small.

Deceptively good gear, hidden pods before the pin for gear up too .4-.5ish BD cams+good nut placements. Not sure why this route is 5.8 while the chickenhead variation is 5.7 as they follow the same line and after the piton the climbing is 5.6 or easier. Fun route though. May 15, 2017
