Description:

Climb flakes and thin crack to a small overhang, then follow a beautiful hand crack up and over a couple of bulges, then, instead of traversing left to the bolt and arete, climb the pair of wide cracks to the top of the cliff. For pro in the wide section, Look for placements in a small crack a couple of feet right of the big cracks to get started, then on top of a chockstone in the middle of it, then a small crack waaayy back in the big right crack near the top. Awesome Route.

5 out of 5 stars A result of determination

With a bit of coaching from my belayer, I was able to use hand jams and chicken wing for the first time.
