Description:

This is the massive crack climb in between Nurseís Hook and Cactus Garden. You may want to tape up your hands before you climb it to save your skin. This route is almost completely comprised of a flared crack. Because of this you must place cams far back into the crack and thus you will need many 24" and 36" runners. If you wish to top rope this route you must rappel down from Doctor Hookís anchors to the titanium bolts above the route.
