I thought "scary choss-pile" the first time this crack was pointed out to me...said "i'd never do it". But it actually turned out to be a great trad climb. I'd do it again! Nice gear placements and nothing broke. Crux is a little strenuous while placing small nuts. Natural belay up top, easy scramble off the backside.


Climbs right leaning crack on the gold S face. Scramble down to the N/NE.
