Description:

This is a totally awesome route. Start up a 5.6 right-slanting hand crack/corner for about 40', which leads to the real climbing. Head up the left hand crack to a slopey horizontal, then move right into the main crack. Mostly fingers to thin-hands, with a fist move to the flakes, and down to tips near the top. The approach is 5 minutes, expect lines in the summer. [edited by iamthewallress: but expect to turn to beef jerky in about 30 minutes in the summer. This is the sunniest crag in the Valley.]

Descent Options:

Rap with two ropes.

5 out of 5 stars Got smoked

by the first small hands crux and the rest of the route went accordingly. I think I may have only got one of the 5.10 cruxes clean. An absolutely beautiful route that begs to be climbed.
