This is the longest route on the cliff and a good one, too. It is located to the right of Lawyer on the Toilet and 15' left of Lichen Lung. Climbs up a right facing slot and around the corner to a nice finger crack. Next, the line becomes a short and interesting flare, a #0 TCU possible near the top. Save some 1"-2" protection for the final crack.


Standard rack up to 4".

There is a strenuous move of 10- entering the final flare. A good one to do before knocking out the two beauties to the right.

Huzzah for that final #0 or #00 in the top of the offwidth flaring chute! It makes exiting the chute a fun move instead of a pants soiling endeavor.

It took me a long time to puzzle out how to enter the offwidth flare. The final top-out was a bit strenuous, but it was on excellent hand jams. It's a smorgasboard of crack climbing with each size of crack nicely divided into its own section.

MUST DO! This is a great line, with a lot of variation caused by the stepping of the rock. I don't know if the top section could be called offwidth, since it can be done with some thin fingers for balance and solid feet jamming. I never used anything larger then a #3 c4. Small stoppers are adequate for the top section. Fun venture up solid rock with a bear hug finish or finger locking goodness!

Great sport! Even more so when you get caught in a sleet storm halfway up. Lots of variety on solid rock. The rap anchors are both intact now.

Lots of variety. Knees useful to get into top groove.

Cool route. Found gear a little thin right before the roof, but worth doing if you are in the area.

This is a great route to top rope solo. The anchors can be reached fairly safely, and then you can easily back it up. Because of the nature of the climb, it can be done several different ways and makes for a great outing. There are other routes as well with anchors at the top. Overall, a great place to solo.

Offsets cams are great for the upper half.
