Short and obvious crack. Good pro on fair rock.


Takes the short crack line left of Death In The Afternoon, passing the ceiling on the left. Gear anchor and walk off to the left.

Climbed this one a couple years ago and it had a fixed gear anchor at the top to lower off. It would benefit from a real bolted anchor as the "walk off" looks like it consists of some exposed down climbing.

The route itself was ok, kinda grainy, dirty, and brushy, but it might clean up with more traffic.
