This rarely done gear route tackles the faint crack system between two bolted routes. Worth doing if you've brought along gear as it's a fun mix of crack and face climbing with absolutely no bolts. It has cleaned up rather nicely from the first ascent when it was loose, dirty and sported cobwebs.


Between Bum Steer and Claim Jumper.

If you brought your gear, give this thing a run! It was by no means a classic, but the rock is good and the gear placements are interesting and solid. It is mostly a face climb over gear. Pretty abnormal for trad and worth a climb.
