Description 

Best rock in the Coulee?

Worth doing several times, this gem is pure fun.
Start in a stellar 1" hand crack for the first 15 feet before clipping the first bolt and moving onto the face. Use both sides of the column and aretes up to a thought provoking crux move.

Location 

Left of Desert Dessert and Jihad obvious crack to bolted face.

Protection 

1" cam and 5 bolts to a chain anchor

just putting it out there, 1" is off fingers for most folks, not hands.

Low jams might be 1" finger stacks but the crack quickly widens to a solid hand jam size, if alone it would probably be 5.9, as would most of the climb with the exception of the single move 10c crux

Though I'm not a huge fan of Vantage column ladder climbs, this is one that I do love coming back to. It has a more serious feel to it and the cruxes depend more on balance than brute strength.
