This is it.


Start off on slopey bulgy face holds to gain the crack. Once you gain the crack, climb it. Starts will little to no feet, pulling through will be rewarded with a nice hand jam. Keep cruising using your off width technique and some chimneying. This thing showed no sign of travel. The route is a little dirty and will benefit from more traffic.


This route is located approximately 20 feet to the right of Groovy Crack.


M-L nuts to #5 C4. Take an extra number 4 if you want to protect the top out really well. Gear anchor. There is a massive block to sling that works well as an anchor. Rap using the bolted anchor above groovy.

Hate to break it to you but you didn't get the FA. I climbed it a few years back, and I'm sure I wasn't the first one up it either. Still a fun line to hit up, especially if you're camped right there.

Right on. Vegetation must have grown in quickly. Couldn't be climbed without excavating quite a bit in the crack low down. I was surprised based on it's location that it didn't show signs of traffic.
