"Actually worth the trouble. Starts on the ledge above and behind Handjob. Climb the crack in the [right facing]corner. FA Rusty Garing and frineds, 1970. FFA Dwight Kroll and Bob Fuller, January 1978." that's what's written in the Slater guide. Fun lil high-step-mantle move to get to the ledge where the crack begins.

You may want to bring a small nut or cam to protect the "step across" move at the start. Nice climb. I just wish it were a 100' longer.

Worth the trouble. I used a #0 Mastercam at the start and then pro from .75 to 2" for the crack.

A bit harder than I expected for 5.7.
