Description 

One of the classic climbs in the West Kootenays.Clip 3 bolts off the deck, while climbing through slopers to gain the obvious rightfacing corner crack. Power up it into the flake, and then make some reachy moves heading some broken corners that are followed to the top. There is good pro on this climb, but it’s a bit fiddly in spots (especially near the top). The crux is harder if you’re under 5’4” (roughly). This is pretty much the only warm up for the crag, and not much of a warm up!

Protection 

blue metolius to #3 camalot. 3 bolts. Anchor has chains
