There are two cruxes to this route. The first is an 11a slab move kind of right off the ground to gain access to the first pitch crack. (It's possible this can be avoided by starting up the 4th class ramp and traversing right into the crack but I'm not sure as I did not do it that way). The rest of the crack is moderate with some 5.9 at the top of the crack, where it peters out and you have to do a little face climbing to the ledge. Belay at the ledge (gear). The second pitch is a straight up crack - for about 100 feet. Very, very thin with the crux around 1/2 way up. End at the same ledge as Apron Jam.


This crack is to the Left of Apron Jam and to the right of the 4th class ramp.


Tiny to 1/2", but it is quite protectable. Lace up that tiny gear.

I personally thought the protection on this route was good since I was able to place a lot of it, but I did not fall on it, and I was only 125 lbs, so it's hard to say what would happen if one fell. With tiny gear, you of course run the risk that the gear will break (tiny brass nuts and the smallest wires- microcams had not been invented when I did this route). It seems as if one would be able to toprope the very fine 10d pitch from the rappel anchors at the top of Apron Jam. Dec 3, 2017
