BETA PHOTO: The start


Long varied climbing in a left facing corner. Double cracks at the top ease the tension You get a little bit of everything on this route. A good warm-up for the area in my opinion


Starts on a block in a left facing corner 30 feet right of 'Idiot Wind.' 2 ropes needed to get off.


Standard Rack to 3" should do. You can plug a #4 Camalot in a couple spots if you want, but it is not really needed

Should you happen to enter the offwidth the wrong direction, be prepared to battle for a bit=)

This is a fun line with a good intro off-width section. Don't let the ow intimidate you.

I was suprised by the number of #1 camalots I placed/wanted. I think a good rack in camalot c4s is 2 #0.75, 4 #1, 3 #2, 3 #3, 2 #4, doubles in the sizes leading up to a #1 and an optional #5. I only had 1 #4 and was fine bumping it for a body length or 2 and I didn't bring a #5.

Really fun, varied climbing, with the perfect amount of features to keep in the low end of 5.10. You can get off with a single 70m so it must be more like 115'.

Sweet to have a #4 IMO.

Also happy to have a 4 given that it protects the crux... could take a 5, but I think it might get counter productive, and be a couple feet below an ideal 4 placement. bring the 5 if this is at your limit and you don't want to fall on a bomber 2 or 1. +1 on the struggle that will ensue if you enter the OW wrong....memorable.
