Just for you Dave!


This route provides a full pitch of aesthetic, strenuous crack climbing. It requires a wide variety of techniques: finger jams, flared toe jams, and unusual stemming. The protection is good, and the route is in the sun all day. There is a rappel station (2 ropes needed) near the top of the climb.


a full rack, with emphasis on small to medium pieces

There is a newish looking rap station right at the top of the crack. This will easily get one down with a 60m rope.

Seemed quite hard for the grade due to the sustained nature of the climbing.

I don't understand the current fashion of posting climbing photos upside down. If is is less than vert the photo should show it.

Sustained? Not really, good rest before the crux. I sewed it up with a purple and red C3. Felt on grade, 10b maybe. A #4 (or was it a #5?) was useful in the first quarter. Interesting succulents in the upper crack!
