Pulling into the wide


From the ledge, face climb to a left-facing corner, then up to the shallow roof below a wide crack. Follow the big crack to the top.


Starts on a spacious ledge just left of Train Time. Look for the obvious wide crack in the roof up high, almost dead in the middle of Celebrity Flake.


Some wide gear. Up to about a 4 Camalot. Anchors on top

A definite Sunset classic! Three years ago, I first struggled through this one on toprope and I had no real memory of it, so leading it was an Alzheimer's onsight. The jams in the big crack are great, and there's enough room in spots to get your whole arm or a leg in for a needed rest. I was really glad I brought the big gear; I had a #3 and #4 Camalot and a #5 Wild Country, used all three and wouldn't have minded having one more big piece. Super fun and challenging lead!

Great crack. Nice because the committing wide moves are spaced between decent jams.

Classic route and a possible sandbagged 8. If you're not proficient in off-width cracks, like myself, you'll probably want to bring 2 #4's and maybe a #3 for the top.

Had 1 #4 camalot and walked it up about half way until I got to the easier terrain. Fun climb with some interesting moves.

WARNING!!! there is a GIANT loose "L" shaped block right after the first ledge, and right before the little roof. It is unavoidable! I will work on getting a picture up, but it is marked. The whole thing shifted when my buddy was repelling, just a little touch moved it.

edit: see pictures, someone else all ready said as much.
