This climb is very loose and a real thrash.


The next crack to the right of White Powder.

Quality Choss!

Still a bomb though.

Following it felt more like old school 5.6.

Given the rock quality, I'm glad the princess rope gunned it for us.

This description is biased. There is not a single loose rock on the route. Yes, it has a lot of awkward moves, yes it does not fit into standard nomenclature (fist-hand-finger crack or whatever) - so it is more fun to do!

A few of our pals did this route yesterday and getting down to the slings in order to rappel off the back side was more of an adventure than the climb itself. At least that's what their experience was!
