A very fun slab route. The route follows a small seam that rarely produces good holds. However, there is plenty of adaquate holds and good feet. Seems harder than many of the 10a's at the ranch.


On the right hand side of Confederate Cracks area. It is to the right Hackberry Crack. You can see the large roof of Nova Monkey from the route, and it sits just to the right of a large chimney called Shelob's Lair. Look for the shallow seam and two sawed off stumps near the top.


Five bolts and a two bolt anchor. A sling can be brought for the stump near the top.

Fun route with a devious technical crux at the top. Different than most of the routes at the ranch (slab). Worthwhile to do if you are in the area. Does not get a lot of love in the guidebook, but I thought it was rad.
