At the next left facing corner from Crucifixion, climb the inside corner up and through the overhang.


Build your own anchor at the top.

The main overhang is pretty close to the ground. Higher up the corner leans overhanging (but the climbing moves are not necessarily overhanging). Thoughtful moves the whole way, pretty sustained in difficulty.

Indirect variation (5.4): Start by climbing the first 10-15 feet of the Grungie gully (left of Blazing Saddles inside corner). Then bear right into the wide inside corner between Grungie and Blazing Saddles. Climb up this to just below a little roof, then step right into the Blazing Saddles corner and finish up that.

One of the best 5.6's I've done anywhere. Turning the roof at the bottom-definitely classic, committing. The upper jams are solid, and passing the second little overhang is definitely airy. I'd say the 5.6 rating is about right for Eastern climbs, but pulling the roof about 10 feet off the ground would likely go 5.7 out West. It was a bit harder today as water was literally streaming from some of the critical holds.
