This is a very enjoyable warm up on the North Side. It starts up a ramp with a hand crack in a left facing dihedral that gets wider as you go and then turns into a finger crack that exits out a steep overhang with excellent foot placements and secure jamming.


This is the first obvious crack system to the left of C.O-R.F.S. Females


1-#2 Camalot, 1-#3 Camalot, 1-#5 Camalot, and 1-yellow Alien bring you to a nice 2 bolt anchor. The anchors will get chains on them soon.

Currently, no chains on the anchor. It would be easy to leave slings and clean them from above on the hike out, though.
