Description:

An area classic up an open book. Starts on cruxy fingers and gradually widens to fists/ow. Face holds keep the grade modest. A 5.11 variation stems the dihedral without using the crack. Have a seat and check out the view from the top before lowering.

Descent Options:

Rap/lower

Beautiful little line, with a great belay ledge - fun climbing at bottom and at the top - bomber chains.

Really great climb. Has some parts that are so face hold intensive you forgot you have an amazingly aesthetic crack right in front of you. Soak up rests, longer sections of jamming can be physically demanding for an .8. I've heard its .8 as in old school .8 and would be graded a bit stiffer if established today.
