Description

OK climbing; never a line; as a result, mossy character relative to its neighbors.The crux is a little like the start to West Crack on DAFF, but the holds are a little larger and the runout a little longer. There is some gear on the way to the start of the crack; offset cams and green alien/smaller are handy. The Reid/Falkenstein book shows this route connecting back to Holdless Horror, but it goes to the top if you want to take it there. Expect a little runout in a runnel. The obvious corner exit is highly vegetated; we took the crack system to its left. Walk off as for Holdless etc.

Location

The crack system between Holdless Horror and Bull Dozier that does not make it to the ground.

Protection

Modern rack; nuts, cams tiny to 4"; no bolts
