  • Description 

    The begining is heavily chalked up and somewhat greasy. Break left to move above the roof and then follow left just above the roof for about 20 ft. take the thin right angling crack to the anchors on the slab above and to the right.

    Location 

    The cave is across the river from the Bastille Crack. Just cross the bridge and take a left. You'll find a bunch of chalked up holds just outside of the cave to the right.

    Protection 

    An #10 BD nut protects the moves to the piton. A quickdraw for the piton and more small gear to the top.
