This is a crack climb, just left of 'B'ing There' and right of 'Texas DJ'. It's the widest/deepest crack on this face of Parachute Rock. The start has a nice finger slot inside along the crack (which makes for a short layback) and good friction through out the entire climb. Mid way up is the crux, which will feel a bit stiffer than 5.6 if you are not familiar with jamming.


Medium to large cams and medium length runners. A small tree at the top of the crack can be used too. The top anchors for 'Texas DJ' are shared with this route.
