This route takes the obvious line on the western most corner of the Crown. A dirty crack, it would benefit from some intentional cleaning of all suspect flakes on the climber's left side of the crack.

There is a large boulder at the top that can be slung (240cm sling) for a top rope.

The true name of the climb or first ascent info of the climb are unknown, but Daniel Valverde once free-soloed a variation of it. If you have information about the history of this very obvious line please comment.


West end of the crown. Very obvious from far away.


Standard trad rack. Two #3's and a #4 would've been nice.
