A real ass-kicker. The original grade was 11B. A hard start and sustained thin fingers up a steep wall. Don't be shocked if this one takes few tries (at least).


on the far right side near the "little flush" a thin crack on a steep wall


Thin gear , wires and small cams.

This is a super good thin crack pitch with technical, strenuous climbing throughout its modest length. I think Webster's guidebook calls it 11d, although I couldn't argue with a higher grade. I got spanked on my onsight attempt years ago and had to have Steve Larson finish the lead. I remember his send being a great lesson in patience and footwork.

i wouldn't go so far as to call this route a 'hidden gem' although it is hidden and good. It has gotten a little overgrown and dirty - packs a punch
