  • Description 

    Climb up a not-so-obvious crack that goes up and curves right finishing on the big ledge. It is a good start to the West Crack. The crux is short and secure.

    Location 

    This is between Gumbo and Finger Crack and right below the West Crack.

    Protection 

    This seems pretty hard to protect, especially at the crux. It is a good solo.

    This is a fun way to start almost any line on this side of the Whale's Tail. Better than negotiating the standard approach. Seems odd to call this PG-13, since it is so short. If you choose, you can place an orange TCU in a pod in order to protect the one or two 5.6 moves.
