Max on jaws. Awesome climb.

Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>


Sustained Hands in a slick corner.
Classic for hand crack/corner lovers.

Start on easy ground, and the climb keps getting harder and harder as you move up closer to the tree, once you get tot he tree is eases up a bit.


Obvious corner left of Stretch Armstrong.


Gear of mostly finger to large hand sizes. Bolted anchor.

The crack was somewhat muddy at the top, at least when I climbed it (November 2014). I am not sure it's worth a repeat.

Probably spot on at 5.9, but felt harder due to the sustained nature of the middle ~30 ft. Absolutely eats pro anywhere you want. Nice, aesthetic line.

Yep, the crack is dirty on top - exactly how I like my cracks.

Make sure to bring passive gear, lots of the crack is tapered or flaring up and down.
