BETA PHOTO: Picture taken from the base of Black Bunny Rabbit....


Follow the crack up the face into a right-facing dihedral. Climb up using the crack in the corner and ledges on the face to a giant ledge with a bolted anchor. Watch for loose rock on the ledge.


This route lies 50 yards east of RSG on a fin that is detached from the main cliff. It requires some easy class 4 scrambling to get to the base of the route.


The route is easily protected with a single set of cams up to #3 BD and a single set of nuts.

This one is well worth the scramble to get over to the base if you're looking for an easy route... very unusual to have a good crack climb at such a moderate grade.
