Kurtz corner is further left. They're taking the cop-out last pitch variation. The overhanging handcracks to the right of the highest climber are no harder than .7 and they're fantastic. Another short (10-12') hand & finger crack above goes at .7+ and marks the final bit of climbing before the finish.

Sam, I think you may not have read Bob's comment correctly, he was estimating that the middle party of 3 (two at the belay ledge and one leading in the cave) would head up and slightly left into Kurts corner. That dihedral in the upper left of this photo is definitely Kurts. You can check the other excellent close up photo of Kurts posted here on mp mountainproject.com/v/10671674... and examine several distinguishing characteristics that show they are the same piece of rock. I love that corner but it is often wet. I have done a right hand exit on .7 cracks before but never an overhanging one, sounds like a lot of fun, I will try to find it next time. So many awesome options at the top of this route.

Thanks Jeff....you're correct, the "would" is future-tense...as in that's where they went. (somewhere I have the photo) Sam, & Jeff: thanks for the clarifications !

8/2/15 A crowded day on Moby Grape: 10 of the 12 climbers on the climb that day. The other two (of the 12) are lower. (see Finger of Fate telephoto) The "middle two" would exit up the left-facing dihedral (Kurt's Corner?) in the upper left of the photo. [Photo taken from Boise Rock]
