Description:

Excellent climb that offers perhaps the best crack pitch on the pass. Pitch 1 begins just left of the toe of the central buttress below a striking corner. Layback and jam the thin hand and finger crack, some 5.9+ moves near the top, to a large belay ledge w/ anchors. Pitch 2 traverses left below the steep headwall above and then heads back right above it. The broken overhanging corner directly above the belay goes at 5.11+.

5 out of 5 stars Pumpy!

Side-pulls, face holds, stems, jugs, and scattered jams. Get the rest in the alcove before you gun it to the top!
