Description:

a fantastic crack leads to a steep chimney, and up to a big belay ledge. pitch 2, either climb in a dihedral or up the rib directly above the belay (recommended, for fun!) then to another nice crack to the top. A supurb climb! -edit- You can climb straight thorugh to the second belay with a 60m rope and enough gear. Runner everything, though, or rope drag is bad.

5 out of 5 stars Onsight Crux Pitch

Climbed with Justin - met him at Elizabeth Riely's party while staying at her place in Boulder. Great climb. Fun and easily protected. I would love to go back and lead the first long pitch of 5.7 - Justin lead first pitch, I seconded and onsighted the crux pitch. Easy traverse to base of ZigZag crack but think about protecting sooner to try and protect your second from a nasty fall - hard to do?

4 out of 5 stars Fun Climbing

Nice little climb for getting used to the BoCan. Second pitch is a little polished and akward but still pretty fun.

4 out of 5 stars Long First Pitch

Belay stance is a little scary. Anchor gear goes in behind detached block. Ick.

Good climbing, otherwise. Sandbagged at 7+, probably, like Bastille Crack. Eats gear.
