Description 

Start "Putrid Rat" then cut left to the next crack, then head straight up. You won't find comfortable pro until about 1/3 of the way up.

A #1 Mastercam doubled with a #2 at about 40' will finally ease your mind, a bit.


Get a pretty good cam in the flaring crack at the horizontal before finishing the last 25-30' on semi-crumbly flakes with no gear.

Location 

The second crack over from the left side of Wall 3 Tower.

Protection 

The FA went with only 4 pieces: a Metolius #1 and 3 finger-sized, but the route has since been cleaned and opened up more slots. Be safe and bring a standard rack. (Pink, red & brown tri-cams will work well, too, but don't be surprised if you don't place many pieces.)
