There are some fun and intriguing moves enroute to the top but more than a few holds are loose. Protection can be challenging to place because one side of the crack is smooth and the other side is coarse. If the rock was more solid, this route would rival other trad climbs on the formation in terms of quality.


This attractive looking, left slanting, finger to hand crack is on a north face around the corner from I Have The Touch and Cosmic Trigger. It begins on top of a large boulder.


Brass and small to medium stoppers, small TCU's, and cams to 2" provide adequate protection. Medium cams can be used for an anchor. Walk down and right to the anchor on top of I Have The Touch and rappel.

i found this route (originally rated 11b) to be way soft for the grade, even more so than the 10d rating given by Vern. 10b/c seemed more like it.

I remember this being a very loose on-sight lead. The route has probably become a bit easier now since it seems some of the death choss has been clawed off. I'm amazed anyone ever does it ... it seems like it was way out in the middle of no where.

Agree that this felt soft, even for the new 5.10d grade. Pretty fun route, nice and steep. Lots of loose flakes and grainy rock inside the crack lend to TRing over leading though, at least for me. Anchor can be built with a long cord using the big oak tree and a few 3" cams. Helmet for the belayer!
