BETA PHOTO: Thin crack in corner in the center of the pic.


Follow thinning crack in corner to a bulgy crux up high, then up and right to chains. The direct finish (up then right instead of right then up) is solid 10+ish.


Downstream on West Wall in Shady Grove. Thin crack in corner just right of The Winsloner & Darkstar.


Lots of thin cams & nuts up to a #2 Camalot.

this is the 10 to try if you dont lead 10 on gear.... it is at least a number grade easier than stick it, which is legit 10, IMHO. you can get a blue camalot in dark star before committing to the slim shady crack, and you can get a 00mastercam up high and right during the easy but run out traverse to the anchors, though it is probably moral support only. nice climb!

It's nice to have some RP's for the last 10 feet.
