BETA PHOTO: I spent a long time figuring out the exit sequence...


Gillett gives this a 10b, it'll be the hardest 10b you'll lead that day.

Start below the crack working your way up the ramp, place the #3 blue Camalot before you get to crack, with the yellow (#2) soon to follow, you will not need any other big gear. Work your way up crack with nice lieback and small jams. When the crack ends, place the 2 HBs (#3 & #4), and step right for the exciting finish.


On the left side of a big ramp at the end of the roofs in the middle of the face is the only crack on the face.


1 blue Camalot (#3) for start, 1 yellow Camalot (#2) as a first piece in the crack, then small Aliens/nuts for the lower part of crack. At the crux near the top, I used a #3 & #4 HB. They were both bomber for the exciting finish.
