Description

An obvious line left waiting in plain sight. The route climbs the seam left of Fat Lip. Fun steep laybacking leads to a changing corner crux with delicate feet and insecure locks. Just when you think it's over there is one more surprise in store!

Location

Start the same as Fat Lip, continue straight up into the giant corner to the roof.

Protection

Mixed gear and bolts. Micro cams up to #3 and 5 draws should get you to the chains

[Hide Comment] Getting to the first bolt is pretty scary due to flaky rock and awkward body stemming, a bolt below here would have been nice. You can get a #4 for pro but recommend a stick clip for the timid. Cryptic and committing crux on great rock with an exhilarating finish up the bomb-bay chimney. Aug 26, 2019
