A thin, shallow seam is the start of this route. Slabby feet and insecure tips jams make it a stout 5.8. Watch out for exfoliating holds. It opens up into a handcrack for the upper part of the route.


Look for the piton in the flaring crack at the bottom of the route.


Has a single piton on the bottom part of the route. The start requires some small pro. I stuffed a 0 C3 in the initial crack and wished I had some small offset cams. As soon as the crack opens up it will take all sizes of gear up to a #2 camalot. Chain anchors on the top shared with MRE.
