This is a classic 5.8, and great practice for any aspiring trad leader! Two parallel cracks that eat up pro, and with two distinct cruxes. Start off with a tricky move out from under a roof to access the cracks. The second crux is two thirds of the way up when the crack shifts to a layback for 6 feet or so.


Medium gear and nuts. There are fixed slings with rap rings around a big pine at the top. You can rap down to the tree from the overlook on the Plunge if you want to set up a TR.
