Description:

Best start is Lemon Twist. From a belay at the top of it head out left and into the roofs. A steep hand crack awaits.

4 out of 5 stars Short and exposed

Can do it via top of Frank's World or Lemon Twist, just head a bit more left and back inwards from FW's anchors on the big shelf. Line follows an easy block start with some loose rock until it leads you up into a really unlikely looking roof slot/corner that arches out behind you and to the right. A little small gear at the start and then a crucial #3 or #3.5 C4 protect (well) an intimidating and airy but awesome handcrack/backstep/stemming roof problem that takes you to an easy top out. Kinda burly but short lived and worth a trip! More fun than Sour Grapes to me.

3 out of 5 stars Bit of a Grunt

Great gear around the crux. Poor gear before, no need for much gear after.
