look out for spiders!


This route is a sit start but it is plagued by an often wet sit start, so unless you like sitting in mud, just start low and move the few moves up using the crack in the dihedral. This problem has a few face holds out to the right which can help somebody who is struggling, but a fun way to approach this problem is to use only the crack.

Not a great problem, it would be good if the sit start wasn't in mud and it was about ten feet higher.

But what the hell have fun on it.


From Wide Crack walk around the back and find the fissure/flake, it is just to the left of a completely blank overhang, which normally has a good amount of water collected under it.
