Description:

One of the THE RED classics. Begin on perforator and traverse left to gain hand sized crack. Climb sweet hand crack until it shallows. Crimp down for a few cruxy moves before a good rest at the base of the upper dihedral. Grovel your way up, into and out of Dihedral to finish one of the BEENE BROTHERS BEST!

Descent Options:

Rap from tree at top.

5 out of 5 stars Send On

Went back this spring and sent it first try this season. Awesome climb which is committing and exciting. Gear is good except for the top I didn't have anything that could protect the dihedral.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent Whipper

My hardest onsight attempt to date. Took no less than a 20 footer at the crux onto a #1 Camalot. I mighty fun attempt at this climb, and I'm looking forward to my next attempt.

5 out of 5 stars woo!

very diverse. a little scary. 70m just barely gets you to the ground, but the belay ledge 20 feet up is pretty nice.
