  • Description 

    The beginning of this route ascends a dirty left facing corner to a scary looking flake. Carefully climb around the flake and up a short chimney to a ledge on the right and belay. The second pitch continues up a right facing corner to the top. This route has some loose rock and a lot of lichen on it.


    The start of this route is located behind a tree about 6' left of Muscular Dystrophy. Just look for a precarious flake about 20' up. Walk and down climb to the north to get down.


    Standard rack of nuts and cams.

    This climb is one of the few in Eldo that I refuse to do again. Horrible! Loose and awkward and quite unenjoyable. I suggest P1 of Bushwhack Crack as an alternative, then hit Laughing At The Moon as a finish.
