Feels hard and thin at 5.10a, but still good fun. Start on a short off width crack to the right of the main face, then step left onto the arete and climb up it trending left near the top. Continue up Firecracker for more fun!


The obvious arete on the right side of the west face.


There are various bolts protecting sections, but it is way more exciting to climb with a rack following the weaknesses. A #4 protects the offwidth start and a single rack of cams and stoppers will be enough for the whole route.
