Description

The furthest west climb on the West End Wall, and likely to stay that way as the wall pretty much ends here.

Start off of a blocky ledge and work up the wavy tips-finger crack on good, albeit a little licheny rock. This splitter lies immediately left of a prominent, leaning pillar. You can cop some hand jams in the flared corner of this pillar at a couple spots to make the going easier, or stick strictly to the finger splitter. Once the crack ends, merge left with the upper 1/2 of Basalt of the Earth and enjoy its great face finish.

The climbing on the lower splitter is worthy, but less quality than Basalt of the Earth. I gave it a couple stars simply because you get to finish on the cool juggy topout they share.

Location

Rap down as for Basalt of the Earth, but to a blocky ledge 5' climber's right (west). A gear belay can be formed from blue TCUs in the crack itself, or #3 BD in the corner of the column to the right.

Protection

1 bolt, (2X) blue TCU .3 .4 .5 BD C4 sizes (1X) #3 BD for belay
