Climbs a short water stained corner. Hard moves left get you to a jug and a great but all too short finger crack that takes bomber pro. Above the flake sticking out of the top of the crack move left to the great finish of the route to the left.


Left facing corner with water stain at lower right end of the upper N. face. It is below and a little right of the guano stain.


Bolts and gear from small to finger sized stoppers and double cams to purple camalot and maybe one green.

The water stain is easily avoided if damp. The crux move which gains the crack is protected by a bolt; from there the climbing to the top is good crack climbing. Both this climb and the climb to its left are well worth climbing.

Although less visually striking than its neighbor, the climbing on this thing is, in my opinion, better (quasi-beta spoiler: I really like dynos, and this climb has one). As Geir noted, it's pretty easy to climb around the crack if it's damp.
