Description:

Start at the same spot as South Africa, and after the finger crack, traverse left, around and up the face. The end is the crux with a 3ft overhanging crack that you feed your whole arm into. Belay from the top of the overhang and then scrmble down to the bolted rapel station. F.A. Lowell, Sterns (1973)

3 out of 5 stars Led poorly. Joe seconded

A cam almost stuck. And higher up, a pro caused huge rope drag--cost many blisters on my hand & lost times.

4 out of 5 stars First lead with half ropes

The crux was getting over the roof and into the finger lock crack. The move around the left side of the small roof was a little dicey, standard Quartz mindset.

5 out of 5 stars Unroped fun

We unroped this climb but continued on to the top of the mountain instead of Amazon's anchors. Fun and scary!

4 out of 5 stars Led

A good route, after the horrible Quartz slab start. All the hard moves can be protected, but take care too much gear and you could end up with a lot of drag. The funny little jam crack to finish adds a final touch. You feet go to sleep standing behind the flake to belay, making the walk down to the chains interesting.
