This route ascends a thin finger crack located on the last of the tallest columns at the right hand side of the face. Look for a small alcove just left of a detached pillar/chimney which ends at 2/3 the hight of the cliff (Bolts for the route "Over 40" - 5.11a are on the face of this detached pillar). Jam the crack while stemming between the large pillar on the left and the detached column on the right. Awesome fun!!!

Descent Options:

No fixed anchor. Belay from natural gear (#1, #2 or #3 camalots), then walk climbers left and rappel from the chains on "Come Back Crack" or walk off climbers left to the base of the crag.

5 out of 5 stars The name says it all.

This route is one of my favorites in all of Washington. Leg endurance is the key to this one. Can be dirty in the early season. I placed 21 pieces the last time up. Feels much harder than "Stems and Seeds"-.11b at Vantage. Welcome to Tieton:).
