This is the crack system right of Love Bandit. Climb a somewhat unprotected squeeze chimney, then (staying in the right branch of the crack) stem and jam your way to the top. Beware of numerous loose flakes.


To descend: scramble down to the B for Beers anchor and rappel 50 feet.


thin to 5 inches

OK, one star, the rock is actually very good quality (not grainy) , but there are some loose flakes!

Not a bomb and worth doing on a quest towards 1000 routes and your circus is at the base for the neighboring routes anyways. The bottom flakes are definitely creaking making you not wanting to use them for anything but still better than getting in that squeeze like my partner did. Large cam in the back of the squeeze to protect otherwise, small to medium with a kinda killer little top out on big horns which was cool. Walk up and over the summit to the anchors of B for Beers or perhaps down climb if you're into such.
