Very thin crack just right of Living for the City. Starts with painful thin jams for the first 30' followed by an easier middle section, then delicate thin stem's and hard to see handholds to the top. Thin, but bomber pro most of the way. This climb was much easier than the other .11c's we tried at Tieton.

Descent Options:

Lower off chains at 80 feet.

4 out of 5 stars Should have gone for the onsite!!

Looked scary so I tr'd it first - puss!! Led it right after and it wasn't too bad. Lots of great thin gear. Much easier than Imperial Master or Tragically Hip!!
