A right facing corner with a very nice crack in the back. Has excellent finger locks and hand jams all the way up. Plenty of stemming opportunities as well. You can also climb the flake to the right of the corner at a grade or two harder. The bottom of the climb can we wet from seepage.


Socrates is the obvious left facing corner 40 feet or so to the right of the crack of F.I.S.T.


If you wanted to lead it there would be good protection except possibly at the bottom.
