Fun and varied climbing up a solid flake. Rests are plentiful. Makes a great warmup for the harder finger cracks in the Lisu Area.


Right of where approach trail deposits you along the cliff, just right of Faraway Corner.


Doubles .3-#3. Optional #4. In camalots.

A great route with movement of both trad and sport climbing. Begin by liebacking up a solid flake until it terminates on some slopey, awkward ledges marked with a skinny crack. Get atop these wakward ledges with a combo of face and crack until a left-facing crack-corner opens on your right. Jam up through this crack towards a pedestal beneath the chains. Getting up on top of the pedestal can be awkward if you miss some hidden good holds.

No gear to lower from. Rap clean the route.

Very soft for the grade in my opinion. Also, I would recommend #.2-4, no doubles necessary.

This thing does feel like a sport climb. One can get through this w/o much jamming so long as the placements are solid.

I personally did not place anything bigger than a #2 C4
