Sierra locked off on solid knees to clean the gear...

Description 

Fun wide crack or undercling layback. Both options go at the same grade: 5.8 for the majority of the climb, then a short section of 5.9 near the top. Leading it as a layback would be X rated as it would be impossible to get any gear on the whole route. One of very few wide crack options on the North Coast, and a very good one at that. Great place to practice wide crack technique, especially with the top rope access.

To top rope, hike up and left around the backside and climb up a short 5.2 chimney ramp.

Location 

20' left of Pelican's BVD's

Protection 

2-3" and 8-12"
Long chordalette to extend anchor over the lip (bolts 4.5' back).
