Ben at the anchors of Lying Crack.


Climb past the first three bolts of Deceived, edging on quartz crystals and mantling onto the ledges. Instead of taking the direct bolt line, traverse right along a ledge with minimal hands to a seam. Climb past two more bolts and make a crazy undercling to a layaway move to reach the jugs above. The crux is cool yet undeserving of the rating, and the traverse is a littly touchy, but the rest of the route suffers from a lack of interesting climbing.


Third bolt line from the left, between a chimney/cave and a left-facing dihedral. Shares the first three bolts with Deceived on the left. Rappel from a double chain anchor that is shared with Deceived.


7 bolts to a 2 chain anchor. Helmets for choss.
