The first prominent crack right of the E-Street dihedral. This is one of the better trad lines on the cliff with excellent rock and a wide variety of jams. The crux involves desperate climbing through the steep bulge using a mix of jams and face holds.


See photo.


Gear to 2” including #0 TCU for the crux.

Fairly easy climbing up to the bulge. Trying to surmount the bulge and get into the pod above requires a tenuous jam. A purple metolius tcu makes the crux feel better protected. Otherwise, run it out above your last TCU which is below your feet or place a squirly orange metolius in that key jam if memory serves me right. What I'm trying to say is, bring a purple metolius (#0 I think) cam for the crux.
