This is a superb steep strenuous finger crack. It has really neat moves with good protection.


This climb is near the center of the formation, to the right of the large, left-facing dihedral of It Satisfies.


mostly thin gear

Lots of fun. A crack line that climbs like a face climb with interesting moves. A good one to add if you're in the IRS Wall area. You can reach the base from IRS wall by walking right and sort of behind Copenhagen, up through a notch in the cliffline, and then back along the base of Copenhagen, (the notch puts you out at the right side of the Copenhagen wall).

Great find. Improbable looking face climbing above first cracks which is actually solid. Fine pro and splendid topout. Great moderate combo is 2 roures on Upper Freeway then walk to QJ then down to Taxman.

Love it down low, hate it up high. Anchor is some 1" to 2" cams on the summit over the ridge a bit. Sorta hard to hear your follower at times.

To get off the top, downclimb to the climber's right (West) until you can get to some anchors. The downclimb is a little sporty.
