BETA PHOTO: The climb.

Seasonal Closure MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This climb is kind of fun, and you might as well do it if you are at this little cliff. The crux is about halfway up when you leave the only jug hold on the route. Above are lots of sidepulls and really small foot holds. You only place about 4 pieces of protection on the route. Three are in the hard climbing. I placed a fourth to guide the rope to my anchor. You use flared cracks to the right as lieback holds. The crack you are ascending does not offer much in the way of holds.

Location 

This is a crack to the right of "Truth Serum". It goes up a shallow crack in a black streak, and the crack is somewhat flared.

Protection 

Standard rack up to a #1 Camalot. Two #1s are nice to have. You can use the anchors on the unknown 11a to the left. These anchors are good after a lead but not very good for a top rope. If top roping, I would build a gear anchor to the right. I used a #4 Camalot, a cordolette, and a small cam for this.
