  • Description 

    The crux is the whole thing. There are no hard moves, but no easy ones either. The holds and sequence are not all obvious.

    For a much harder version (V6+?), do a sit-down start and grind your knuckles in to get up to the normal start. Actually, some very odd jessery made the moves easier than expected to be. It's fun to figure out (and no, the rocks on the ground to the right are not needed... just the crack and some footholds on the main wall.


    On the West and of the Main part of the S. Goose Egg, there is a splitter tips and finger crack going up the steep overhang. Climb this to the top.


    A crash-pad and spotter. The FA was done in approach shoes. Watch out for the slab behind you in the case of a fall. My partner fell off and was OK, but heads up for sure.
