This is the steep face climb ascending the pillar just to the right of Moon Struck/Come Back Crack. A real lesson in balance, desperate smearing and micro edge crimping. I've got to call sandbag on this one.

Descent Options:

Rappel from chains at the top of the pillar or continue up on "Come Back Crack"-.10c or "Bloody Knuckles"-.10b.

5 out of 5 stars Top rope ascent.

While I have gotten this clean several times on top rope the thought of leading it still scares me away. So thin and hardly an obvious hold on the whole route. A real lesson in old school ratings to boot!!
