a fairly nice crack climb


This route is on the north end of the rock,around the corner to the right from the other routes. It goes up a corner and over a small overhang.

A very nice finger crack in a small corner that goes over a couple bulges. Extra finger size. 2-3" for the belay. This route was much nicer than it appeared from the ground.

I loved it, totally kept me thinking. Cool steep moves for a 5.8, although there are some hollow holds for sure.

I see why most folks give it few stars, as it is not sustained. (the climb basically turns 3 roofs, each of which is steep and juggy). That said, I had more fun on this than I did on Mental Physics.
