All the business on this climb comes in the first 15 feet then it's easy sailing! Tricky finger and jam crack leads to a somewhat discontinuous crack system that seems to just go on forever! As you get up near the top, look behind you for a surprise view of Lake Superior. Eats gear the whole way!


About midway between Old Number Nine and Swords of Zanzibar.


Cams and nuts from fingers to #2.

Take lots of gear in the finger sizes, cams and nuts.
