The crux is between the two homemade hangers and inserting yourself in the squeeze. It has great rock. The giant, wedged block on top is a little scary.


This is to the right of Aid Climb III in an offwidth corner on great dark rock. Homemade hangers visible from the ground.


There are three fixed pieces including a old Leeper Z slammed into a hole half way up. A #4, #5 and #0.4 helps.

Yesterday I rescued a cam from the dark depths of the crack below the first hanger. If it's yours, let me know and I will try to get it back to you.

Climbed this the one summer of 2012. Didn't seem like 10a to me, more like .9+. Unless you have Bigbros, it probably qualifies for an R rating as there was a pretty good runout between the #4 1/2 I placed at the bottom and that first bolt, didn't have any gear big enough between them. One of the bolts (I think the second) was very loose. Fun move getting past the block at the top.
