Description 

The main crack Zig-Zagging up the blue west face. Layback the first 10 feet in a unique alcove-start and blindly stuff some gear in the crack above you. Break out onto the face and keep yourself in the crack as it widens, steepens and the pump builds. Shove your arms in elbow-deep and find the good holds. This route is a gem. Still some loose blocks on a few ledges. Nice powerful climb.

Location 

Walk around the left side of Facerock.

Protection 

Mostly fist-sized pieces or larger. A little guy for the bottom if you want. Chain Anchors.
