Description:

A magnificent 2 pitch climb to the right of Pop Bottle. The first pitch follows craks and dikes into the beginning of the corner, ending at a huge ledge. The last pitch ascends the enormous corner via a very enjoyable finger crack with smears for the feet and many 5.9 moves. The crux comes at a four foot roof where the crack narrows to barely accept fingertips (and I mean barely!).

5 out of 5 stars so cool

Really thin, bring nuts. I think it really helped to be 5 ft tall with small fingers. I laid back the roof and got a high foot on the edge of it to get over. Beautiful thin pressing and fingers corner leading up to the crux roof.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet route!

Followed 5/31, after lithiummetalman who pulled the crux after 2 falls. Second pitch sustained, sweet finger crack in corner. Aided crux off fixed nut in roof. Mostly required more finesse than strength. Very fun!

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Lead the pitch 1 & after looking at pitch 2 we realized that we just don't have the guns for it after climbing hard for 7 days, so just kind of bailed out left on to the 2nd pitch of Pop bottle, ah well definitely want to do at some point...Tim followed all pitches

4 out of 5 stars #00 tcu

... protects "the move" from above, and you can place it from below the roof if you reach up high... unfortunately, if you are like me standing on tiptoes on that slab, you will lose your balance and fall while placing the cam. after that, actually doing "the move" was sweet. excellent pitch.
