On the F.A. of Use Of Force.


Climb up a short section of 3rd class blocks to a small ledge. The route begins by stemming between two cracks using the crack on the left for gear. Strenuous thin stemming and small holds lead to a couple bolts which are passed by leibacking your way up the left crack to a good stance. Good gear protects the rest of the route which is a slightly overhanging finger crack requireing delicate stemming and powerful moves to the top.

There is an easier variation called 115 (one fifteen) to the left. For this variation, start the route in the same spot. After climbing past the two bolts, traverse into the right hand crack and follow it up overhanging tight hands to the top.


This route is located just to the right of Cruxus.


Cams, .4" - 1.5"
