This is one of the most classic routes at the Bend area. Shares a start with "Reckoning" then climbs the exposed crack splitting off to the left at about 30'. Great gear, fun climbing and excellent rock! Love it!!

Descent Options:

Rappel from chains at the top of the cliff.

5 out of 5 stars My first .10c lead!!

Just as good today as it was 20 years ago! Should not be missed by anyone climbing .9 or harder. Easily top roped from chains on top. Takes great finger sized gear. There is a slight runout at the top before you reach the chains.
