This route follows a short, left-facing corner. The climbing is largely awkward finger jamming on excellent rock. Rappel from the ledge at the end of the climb.


Standard rack.

Thought we were on Sundance which is FAR left of this route. Crack is somewhat flared and takes smaller gear > 0.5.

CAUTION!!! About 20' from the top there is a very large lose thin block inside the crack. Its right near the crux and its the first "jug" you can really go for....but please don't. This block will come out if you pull on it!!

Awesome physical flare. Good warm up for Insomnia.
