  • Description 

    A 5.7 that is worth doing when at this wall. Make sure you protect the start well, because it is surprising hard for the 5.7 leader, and like the book says eases up higher up.


    crack right of X Factor, and left of column with Stress Management.


    gear to 3", but if you wanted you could drag up a #4 and #5. You could belay the follower up and access a better anchor to rap off of.

    looks like there are a number of big cracks left after the demise of the column, maybe this will still be 5.7, just will need some cleaning and an anchor.
