Whose idea was this? Floundering on the File in s...


P1: Climb and jam the beautiful hand/fist crack in the south facing wall. The initial roof is the crux but this is pumpy the entire way.

Straightforward and burly. You may want to tape up...the route name says it all!

Descent is a little tricky as you have to down-climb the eastern side of the block.


On the south-facing wall of the Leaning Block, about 5 ft from the corner.


standard trad rack though this thing will eat up 1"-3" pieces.
