This is a nice line that took a little bit of cleaning, and the trundling of a very unstable and rather large block from the bombay corner. Climb the short right facing corner past a bolt to excellent small stopper placements. The corner changes to a short left facing feature here, and leads to a small ledge. From the small ledge, stem wide up the right facing bombay corner, passing 2 bolts to easier ground. Continue up the low angled crack and seam (RP's up high, or climb left and back around) to an anchor at 100'.


This is the last line on the left end of the wall. It is 100' left of "Hickory Nutcracker". Locate the left side of the huge flake system that creates "Hickory Nutcracker"


Standard rack, with some small nuts/RP's.

Great, well-protected stemming in the RF corner. If you've done Hickory Nutcracker, give this a shot after you walk down behind the flake after HN.

The more easily-protected of the two cracks above the RF corner may be wet/mossy/dirty.
