  • Description 

    Start up the large, right-facing corner off the grassy ledge (same start as Scrundle Corner). Move right on great edges to avoid the steep bulge above. Continue up the beautifully smooth groove and up into the long, clean, right-facing feature to the top. Classic line!

    All natural pro.

    First climbed this in 2004 with Jordan Wood. I'm sure it's been done long before that too.
