4 out of 5 stars thin

a ways up for your first pro. Crack starts nice.. gets super thin, more face climbing/smearing with your feet than really crack climbing. very balance-based climbing through the middle of the crack, crack mainly helps you stabilize, feet do all the climbing on this one. Pro is thin, used only nuts, but the stopper placements are solid. At the top you can go right or left to get around the big flake to the anchor tree. Left was dirty and dusty for me, have also climbed right... I'd recommend right. overall a great route

4 out of 5 stars Nice way to end the day.

You have to climb about 20 feet for your first protection, which may explain why I never see anyone on it. After the first few feet, though, it's pretty easy.

The crack itself is thin. I could only get tips in (if that). You need slab technique as well.

Fun, but fingery. Very thin crack. I one-hung it.

Slippery face moves. Just give me a finger lock please.
Glad I didn't lead this.
