4 out of 5 stars not so fun crack

Good crack, but ackward body placement needed due to the dihedral. Perfect finger and hand jams about 80% of the way, then crack widens and the edge rounds out.

You can do the route as a straight up crack or as a layback... and it could be done as a trad or a sport route. It feels like completely different routes depending on the ascent style you choose. Between this and "Chop Chop" (to the right) the single anchor gives you a lot of milage.

5 out of 5 stars really fun dihedral

not too hard, not too easy, perfect goldilocks climb. lieback the dihedral or go spread eagle and use the crack to the right of the dihedral (where most bolts are).
