  • Description 

    This is a worthy route on the far right side of Split Block. The start is jamming a crack through a bulge, well-protected. Then you have a long face climb with good hands and feet and decent protection. This is Not a climb you can sew up; rather, there is protection, but it is well spaced.

    I used all the TCU's from 00 - 3.

    This is clearly not climbed often; it's a bit lichen-y and dirty, and you have to be careful of the rock at the start, but it was a fun climb, and a good warmup for the best line on Split Block: Ohmer's Odyssey.

    Easy walk off to the right.


    Standard rack to #3 camalot, stoppers. Huge tree at the top for an anchor. Easy walk of Right.
