Description:

Most obvious dihedral in this area Locker hand/finger crack in a just-more-than-vertical corner that also leans to the left, making it a pretty strenuous climb. Crux is an awkward move around a boulder capping the corner. The rusty bong that resided as the first piece of pro has sadly been removed. (last sighted Oct., 1999)

4 out of 5 stars great corner crack

Sinker jams the whole way, up until the top out.

5 out of 5 stars sweet.

good gear all the way. took a rather "direct" finish up through the blocky roofs on the right. not sure if it's standard but I did a "beached whale" move several times!
