A worthy route. The climbing up to the overlap can feel a bit heady, but is really good. Probably worth brushing the pine needles off the top out before leading it, you wouldn't want to fall off up there. You can bang a left and top out Layton's, avoiding the last 15'.


Just right of Layton's. Look for a hard-to-see bolt about 20' off the ground.
For a top rope, use the same big pine tree as for Nomad Crack.


Nuts and cams up to a #1 or #2 Camalot with a doubles in the finger sizes. RP style nuts may come in handy.

I got on it a few days ago, and it has gotten a bit dirty again. I'll give it some loving next time I'm over that way.

Well worth some attention. Longer and more interesting than Jolt and Off the Hook.
