A good 65' pitch, better if linked into 'The Big Narrow' for 100' and best of all if then continued into 'The Finish Carpenter' for 160'(?) of quality climbing.

Start off in the right-facing, right-leaning corner off of a single bolt and gear belay. This is the right-most of 3 such corners and 2-such bolts. Climb up on continuously good locks and good gear to the end of the crack. You will see an anchor out left on the low angle slab that can be reached after 20 meters, but why stop there?

Continue onward tending right to merge with The Big Narrow, and follow those cracks (moderate) to a ledge, now 100' over the belay or so.... Cross some blocks on a ledge and continue up a thin-hands right-facing corner (Finish Carpenter, 5.9-) to the blocky ledge of the rock reached first via the approach. Savor the nice long pitch as you belay up your partner.


This route is the right-most of 3 consecutive right-facing corners on a ledge below tier 3, rached by rapping from the slab anchor. It starts up on tips and locks and goes and goes....


A standard light rack to 3" with heavy emphasis on fingers and thin hands.
