This describes the free section to a longer aid route. A fixed gear anchor allows for the lower free section to be easily climbed. This climb offers a short but enjoyable pitch that offers sustained technical stemming/jamming.

Gain the corner and follow it and the crack system until it is possible to exit right to a stance. Follow a couple reachy moves on good jugs to the fixed anchor (.75-1 C4 size useful to backup).


Start: 75 feet right of Mr. Clean at a ~30 foot long left-facing corner with a fixed anchor ~40' up below a large, blank, bulging overhang.
Descent: Rap/lower from fixed gear anchor


Rack to 2", 3" piece might work better, dbl. .5-.75 could be useful but not necessary

Fixed gear anchor
