Off-width taking at least four #4s and one #5 along with some other miscellaneous cams leading straight up to a ledge where face moves take you right and up past three bolts to chains. The crux seems to be getting into the main crack.


This new route, put up on 7/4/11 by JoFo, is to the right of "Nit Picking," and is the obvious vetical off-width crack you can see from the parking area. It starts in a broken and tree filled corner that forms the end of the "Welcome Wall."


At least four #4s, one #5, 3 quickdraws, runners.

Awesome route, tight fists to an exciting face. Can see it from the road, visually pleasing.

At times your moves are hard to determine...move right, move left, dive in or use the edges.

A fun route for sure. I would have liked 2 #4's for the top but I misread the size from the ground so two not-quite-tipped-out #3's had to do the trick.
