Description:

A nice off width crack that begins left of North Face Center. The route starts off with some nice hand jams and then widdens to off width. At about 30-35 feet up you can jam in your leg in but be careful not to get it stuck! The crack begins to slim out again anf there are some spots on the face to grab ahold of if need be, to get you to the top. Rap down or walk off.

Descent Options:

No fixed anchor. Walk off.

3 out of 5 stars Took twice

Turns out the route was harder with gear and rope in the way. Very glad to have both the #5 and 6 c4.
