Good movement up a well protected series of cracks. Would be a lot better if there was less lichen. The flare is wide and strenous and would be a considerable challenge to the 5.9 leader. Easily done in one pitch if rope drag is managed.


There is a prominent rock thumb on the middle of the West face. Work your way up face moves and a short handcrack until you pass the thumb. Continue straight up until you reach some rap rings and the base of a flared slot. Fire the slot and head up until you reach the prominent ledge below Fun Roof. Finish via any of the roof pitches or walk off right.


Standard rack to 4"
