Double cracks to the left of Bears Reach. 3 pitches of nice crack climbing/dike hiking. The crux is on the second pitch, climb over buldges using pin scars, small cams are helpful here. Joins Bears Reach at the 2nd belay.

4 out of 5 stars led p1,3

Sammy led p 2,4 (traverse) tried to go for the wide crack up top but decided against it w/o the wide gear. Sammy led the hardest pitches- sustained 5.8.

5 out of 5 stars Another LL

classic. Never found the bolt and pin at the top of the 1st pitch that are on the Supertopo. I disagree that there is no real crux. The 2nd bulge on the 2nd pitch felt cruxy to me.

4 out of 5 stars Awesome route

Personally liked it better than bear's reach. My partner came off slipped and hit her back (backpack) at the sustained cruxy part of P2 (watch out).

5 out of 5 stars Cool route

led 1st and 2nd pitches, BG took 3rd, including a whipper. The girl will go for it. This climb eats up offset aliens.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

I enjoyed this climb more than Bear's Reach. Steep and bulgy with plenty of great pro. Great moves that make you think, but aren't too hard.
