Will Cornell night climbing The Fang.


work up under the roof, grab the downward pointing horn(great holds on both sides.
work up the horn to a slab finish.
bad landing


walk up the trail. pass the B1 boulder, and follow the trail to the left, then back right. the trail crosses just below a slab with a crack in it(5.7).
just beyond the slab, look to your right, and you will find the problem.

I'm a bit confused. does this route start on the fang or does it start down in the cave. starting all the way down is definitely not v3

this is a rad problem. it's a must do. ^^ Will, it starts on the fang. down in the cave is a V5 and it connects and tops out on the fang. The crux is definitely the last couple moves getting out from the fang. the last couple holds are horrible.
