Description:

Across the canyon from Toxic Shock is this small buttress with a detached pillar. This route goes up the crack that separates it from the wall. This fun little climb has spit off it's share of suitors, so don't under estimate it. Use this route to set up topropes on the other climbs, but be careful as it is loose up there!

Fun, but if you're not used to wide crack climbing, be ready to work it out!

While I did make a few whimpers, I'll blame it on being wet. Good crack and it isn't very sustained.

Can use a variety of techniques: start out with hand jam, then lieback, and even some face moves at the top.

2 out of 5 stars short and sweet

Not as intimidating as it looks from afar(you can skip the widest bits by climbing the face), but it will get your attention quickly if you are not solid at the grade.

If you plan to use it to set up a top rope on Agent Orange, take small gear to back up the old button-bolts atop that climb.
