Description:

Follows the main crack about 10' to the right of "Place Your Bet", towards the end of that wall section; but staying in the crack is a trap, especially towards the top. There is an interesting variation starting on the buttress at the base; and faces to the right are a lot harder.

3 out of 5 stars Easy first climb

First thing I climbed at Pilot. There are a couple variations you can do around the block halfway up.

4 out of 5 stars Through the crack

Barbara climbed this and only ran into trouble when she got to narrow section between the main face and the rock sticking out. Being skinny she got through there. When I climbed it I am to chunky, so traversed right out over the dihedral then back left which brought me almost to the end of the climb.
