Description:

Start 20' to 25' right of Dark In Bad at the first of two left angling cracks. Follow the crack to its end and connect to Name Unknown. The crack system offers plenty of pro. The route can be finished on Name Unknown or at the fixed pin. The route length given is to the fixed pin. I'm sure the fixed pin has been used for rappelling but it is not recommended.

Descent Options:

Walk off on trail to the left. Possibilities for rapping off of trees.

4 out of 5 stars Finally Caught Dry

This route always has a wide streak of water and slimy moss near the base. Monday it was dry, and I got to lead this fun route. It is a diagonal traverse with good protection a the bottom, although I hit about 50 feet of low-grade friction runout at the top, made more interesting due to rope drag.

A bat yelled at me from his crevice at the top of the steeper section.

4 out of 5 stars Challenging 5.5 Trad Climb

Awesome climb. Second pitch, above the two pitons, is run out. Used the pitons and two additional stopper placements for anchor at top of first pitch.

Could probably make the climb a single pitch with a long enough rope.

4 out of 5 stars Just Showing Another Climbing Partner the Routes

I only climbed this route again for the benefit of my climbing partner, but I have to admit that this one is a little fun. I might climb this route again if I returned but only if it was for a new climbing partner.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent Pro

This was the last route I climbed that day. It started to rain the moment we hit the ground. The crack was easy to follow and allowed for ample pro. I used the fixed pin from Name Unknown as a belay, then rapped off of a tree.
