Description:

Follows a great-looking flake up and right into a wide crack finish. Not in the book, so my friend and I may have nabbed the FA (unlikely). Needs to clean up, but better than the two surrounding routes. Located b/w After Dance and Crystal Delight.

Atpeace's edit: According to Dockins it was first cleaned and F.A.ed in the mid 90's

4 out of 5 stars Worth walking to fish face.

Sweet lieback/jam crack to the left of Crystal Delight. Takes gear really well. Near the top, move left towards the arete into the wide crack. Save a larger piece for the finish. Crux is the finish.

4 out of 5 stars Crack

One of the purer crack lines in the canyon. Too bad the upper fist section is so short

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

yeah, light lead this crack too, and I followed, you can see it in the background of the crystal delight photo I submitted. We were wondering if it had seen a prior send as well. Pretty fun climb, did'nt think it was as hard as a 10a though, maybe an 8+/9-
