long diagonal crack that turns straight up towards the end. crack narrows as you go with a large opening about half way up.


covered in trees left of yellow pages.


small to medium. fairly hard to make an anchor at the tom, consider using off-set cams.

One of the better climbs I've done at E-Rock. More thought provoking that straight up jamming with a mixture of moves. Climbs longer than it looks thanks to the traversing nature. Thumb Up!

- NO WAY this thing is PG13. G route for sure. Diagonal crack eats up gear. Above the "pod" you can can a cam in behind the flake. Might not be great but I was ok with it. A bomber .75 cam and nut can be found above the pod that protects the top moves. Up top, I found #1 and #2 camalot placements - a nut tool would likely dig out a third cam. I belayed from the top. Would be harder to rig a TR anchor.

I agree with Matt--the climb definitely doesn't warrant a PG-13 rating. You can place ample gear on the traverse to prevent a ground fall.

Felt relatively easy for the 5.10 rating.
