Fun and safe little 5.7 crack that is good for the new trad leader. Very safe stances, although the gear can be a little tricky. From lovely arete, go around to the left and ascend the obvious left-leaning crack at about a 45 degree angle. It's jug hauling near a crack feature; no jamming required.


Small to large cams, tricams placements can be found. Can set up a TR anchor with several large size cams in the horizontal crack up top, or can walk all the way up to the trees. Better to have a follower, though, to clean your gear. Follower can top out and rap down off of any of the bolted anchors for Hidden Treasure, Lovely Arete, or Velvet Green.
