DescriptionClimb the face for a few moves and move right into the wavy crack. Follow good cracks around right of a small roof. Continue up the narrow ramp, passing a few good rest stances and good pro. About 2/3 of the way up, slot the perfect keyhole nut placement, and say goodbye to protection (minus 1 BD 0.3) for about 35' (crux). Cheer loudly as you reach the hand crack again just below the belay ledge. 120'
Rappel from chains. 60m rope would probably make it to the ground with stretch. We used a 70m.
This goes at 5.8 in both local guidebooks, but it is harder than both Sparerib and Zig Zag.
