Description:

It amazes me that this gem has not been added until now. Starts about 150 feet right of Crack Attack at a nice flat clearing. Climbs the featured left facing corner. Stemming, tips, face climbing and great gear (blue metolius) take you through the thoughtful crux at mid-height. After a handjam rest the climbing eases slightly but is worthy of attention since the pro requires the smallest cams on your rack. Excellent moves the entire way.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Great, powerful route. A little sketchy up high with the sandy, crumbly holds and small gear placements.

4 out of 5 stars Atypical IC route

Such cool features for stemming. Great crux! This route is a real gem! I'd be interested in hearing what others think for the rating.
