A tricky slab utilizing a dual crack system.


When facing North Country Crack turnaround and go down and then around a corner to the right. Also listed in Sven's book.

Rhoads did you investigate the gear on this beast? This was one of my first climbs ever at the Lake and I'm failing to remember if the gear is good or if the route is worth going back to tick off on lead.
