Nice jaunt up the double crack system starting just right of "The Bulge" and veering right, halfway up, toward the chains for "Full Appendage". The left crack starts at hands and widens to off-width before the roof while the right side stays more consistent at small fingers. The two cracks are less than 2 feet apart so can easily use both.

A fun 5.8 variation is at the top if you decide to say left at the roof and jam/lieback the fist crack. Once over the roof, just traverse right about 8 feet to meet up with the original route at the nearest chains above "Full Appendage".

The route can be done as a chimney, as a proper jam-fest, as more of a face climb, or a combo of all three. Take your pick!


Hop in the chimney directly right of "The Bulge"


Anything from brass offsets to a #5 Camalot, seriously just pick an assortment of about 4 or 5 pieces, and it'll probably work. (Save a #3 for the end if you do the 5.8 roof variation)

A couple extendable draws are nice, especially if placing pro in both cracks, or if placing anything in the 5.8 roof finish and traversing.

I've always wondered why there was no route info for this one on MP, since it's pretty easy to that there are anchors up top, thanks for adding it! You can climb this in a variety of ways, but if you go the easiest route and grab the huge holds it's 5.easy. Aug 3, 2017
