BETA PHOTO: It's the thin crack.


A right facing flare that presents challenging thin crack and face moves. Face climb into the start of the flare (10a), then follow the crack (11b/c) to a two bolt anchor.


Located between The Source and B.C.'s Ouch Chimney. Approach past the base of Caliente.


Several thin up to 2"

A good looking line that is marred by limited traffic. The business section could use some excavating. The rock is quite grainy as well. However, in its current state I enjoyed a four star experience on a two star route. With more traffic it could approach classic status.

I echo the sentiments of the comment above. A great route that I definitely recommend. Bring plenty of thin gear for the lead. Although the route beta says the route is 160', it's not and can be top roped with a 70m from a bolted anchor above. I can't confirm whether a 60m will get you up and down.
