gaping chimneyish dihedral up the left side of cowboys & cossack's wall. I thought the cruxy bit was maybe harder than 5.9 but Chris was leading and he called it 5.8, so . . . I must have just gotten in an awkward position.

2 out of 5 stars wide crack with facial features

Fun crack that eats up big gear. placed two #4s, and walked a #5 camalot all the way up. Crux is where the face goes blank and you have to hip scum arm bar up to a thin crack in the back of the wider crack.
