Climb either "Brontosaurus" or "The Seam" to the ledge. Then climb the overhanging finger crack to anchors. This is said to be the hardest trad route east of the Mississippi... It is not.

This route was originally an aid route called "Nazi Bitch Crack" (5.8 A1) by Cliff Hooper. The First Free Accent went to Steve Petro.

5 out of 5 stars Great Climb

Steeper than it looks with just enough good fingers to keep you on the rock. Sometimes.
