Merrill Bitter on a successful ascent, early 1980'...


Power fingerlocks and pinches take you to a sloper. Another pinch and finger crack take you up and over the lip. Follow a 5.7 crack to the top of the Coffin.

This was the first 5.12 in LCC


Above the Coffin crack, left side. Need to climb the first pitch of the Coffin to the roof. Traverse left to a bolted belay...get ready to power up.
