Description 

As The name-sake of the area, the route and it's variation are definitely worthy. The climb follows the most obvious features up this section of the wall for four pitches. Great jamming and stemming up cool corners and splitters leads you up the route, with a crux, 10+ steep(!) off-width.

The first pitch starts up a corner with a wide crack in it that is decomposing, and a thin crack to the right of it. Start by climbing the thin crack and stemming wide up the corner until you can pull left into the corner. Follow the corner/ramp up and left past a splitter ,that is the Fractured Skies variation, to a corner that the ramp meets up with. Hand, finger jam and lie back your way up this corner(5.10) until you can step right, to the anchor.

Pitch 2 step back left and around the arête. There's a bolt to protect the airy step past the arête. Climb up into the steep off-width/chimney for the rest of the pitch until you conquer the torture and can see the bolted anchor to your right.

Pitch 3&4 continue up a lower angle wide crack (5.9) that soon turns to nice fist and hand jams to a bolted anchor. Then climb up to blocks and traverse out left (5.8) and up to the last anchor.

Location 

The main route up the green crack area, it goes to the left of the roof in the middle of the face.

Protection 

Nuts to 6" with doubles from fingers to 5".
Two ropes for the rap. You'll rap from the top of pitch 2 to the ground.
