This superb pitch is listed as a project in the book (climbed in 1995, but not free), but has since been cleaned and led (2014). It's an excellent, sustained, and sequential pitch, on par with Romano's Route at the Spider's Web.

Climb a black wall to a horizontal 12' up; no jugs here, so use caution. Fire in the #4 Camalot, then follow the left-leaning seam (crux) to a sloped stance 45' up. Continue up the crack to a fixed anchor.

Watch that the rope doesn't snag in the crack when you lower.


Begin right of the prominent, wide overhang 40' up, at a left-leaning seam that begins in a horizontal 12' up. The seam breaks a wall with orange blotches.


Single rack to #2 Camalot, and a #4 Camalot.
