Bolts Are Failing! MORE INFO >>>


Climb a brief, strenuous finger to hand crack up to the pod. Plug small gear in the overhang, duck into the hole for a rest, then pull out from the roof (don't get your helmet stuck!). A long reach helps to get the good jams/jugs here. Pull hard through this to establish yourself on the face then scramble up to a stance. Two flake options present themselves: one to the left, which is a jug haul to an easy rightward traverse, or a thinner flake straight up to the anchor ledge.


On the South Claw of First Cave. North-facing wall. The crack with a big hole in the middle, just left of the roof.


Gear to 1.5"
316 steel anchors (2011)
