This is a fine, fun lieback corner crack. Fairly easy climbing up blocks leads to the main corner. The corner maintains a consistent size to the top, liebacking and a little stemming now and then will get you there.


Far right and uphill from Pumpline and the other Careno routes.


Standard rack, good placements the whole way. One rope is enough to rap down.

About 700 feet past the Regular route.
This is a great climb and would be a good lead for someone working on leading 10a, protects well, has good rests, but still challenging. The lower portion has flaring crack on right, but great finger locks on the left. One can either layback or stem past small roof, top is mostly fingers layback.

This one just keeps on giving. Well worth the schlep.
