Description

  • Start by working your way up stacked but fairly solid blocks until you can get into the pod at the base of the prominent offwidth.  Climb this to its top then hand traverse right 4 feet to a big ledge. Move back left into the finger crack in the corner and continue up as it diminishes and gets steeper. Move left out of the corner to get established under the roof, then pull through it on the right side with crazy exposure but good holds. 2 bolt anchor on big ledge above. Alot of variety, awesome moves, exposure and good gear make this a unique and instant  classic trad line, well work the extra walk, in my biased opinion. 

Location

5 minutes past Black Moon Rising. From BMR, contour down and accross the hillside, heading north. Cross an open area of ferns, then go down to the base of a prominent little wall. Here you cut up steeply to gain a higher band of rock, then contour along the cliff until you can punch up steeply through a dirt gully, ducking under an old fallen tree to gain the buttress above.  FITMK is the obvious offwidth/corner on the right side . 

Protection

Trad gear, rack of 000 c3 to .75. With doubles in tips to finger sized.. also, a #5 (or two) to protect the offwidth.
