Dallas Millburn on the Alcove.

Follow the obvious crack feature splitting the overhanging wall in the alcove, starting in a big undercling at the left side of the roof. A killer heel-toe is very helpful for a couple moves, just be careful! The landing is not great. Finishing directly is tricky, it may be easier to traverse back left to top out at the corner.


This is in the alcove up and left of Cloud Shadow.


Pads, spotter, care.

Did a hold break/get smaller on the top out off left this winter?

Some of the holds that you grab on the top out seem strong but not extremely strong. On a bad day, you might be able to have a reasonably bad fall. All hail the heel hook.

The top holds have turned to a tiny flake on the left and a blank right. Like above, def. heel hook & mantle with a spotter & pad(s). Super rewarding/sketch finish.
