Description:

On the shady side of the Nautilus. Most easily approached from the SE side, past the Torpedo Tubes. Look for a shallow left-facing corner that starts off a block, then flips to a big right-facing corner about 12 ft up, all capped by a rightward roof traverse. First part is delightful 5.8 fingers and hands, perhaps my favorite climb at the 'Voo. Each move is aesthetic; no two moves are the same. Chains where the crack intersects the roof (1 rope rap). P2 traverses under the roof along a sloping hand ledge with undercut feet and ... well, w/out ruining the adventure for ya, let's just say wearing a snug wool hat might be helpful. (10d)

3 out of 5 stars Only P1

Nice 5.8 finger to hand crack. The roof kept us dry in the rain.

4 out of 5 stars 1st Pitch Only...

We only climbed the stellar first pitch as we were unduely frightend off by the grade of the second pitch. The first pitch is a sweet handcrack that goes at 5.8. Just great climbing though.
