  • Description 

    This is the namesake of the crag for those who have the Rossiter guide, which refers to the entire crag as Inca Stone.This route is difficult and devious, the holds are small and some are sharp- the feet sloping in places. Darn hard in humid conditions (or a drizzle)! In fact, darn hard when dry.

    Locate the large juniper on a ledge toward the lefthand side of the crag- this impressive tree lies just below the high point of the wall, a peaking tower. Approach from the West (left) to gain the ledge and traverse to just right of the tree, below a black bolt hanger. Climb up and then up and right, passing bolts along the way. Some of the holds are small and pinchy, or off angle and very hard to hold. Big moves and reaches. The top half of the route is juggy and much easier. Wear nice tight shoes- you're going to need some precision.
