Getting into the first slot

Description 

Start in the same crack system as S'more. At the first roof head up the left crack into a slot. Climb though this slot which leads to a second awkward slot, squeeze though the second slot into the final tight dihedral section, excellent finger jams take you to the ring anchors.


Location 

In the prominent right facing corner just past the closure signs. The start of the route is slightly up hill off the main trail.


Protection 

Standard rack up to a #3 Camalot

Flares! Put AO on your Valley Training Circuit, and take your crack climbing to a new dimension.

Top it out for full value-- the rings are nice, but they definitely shorten things a bit.

This is a pretty cool little climb. Not the tallest line at sunset but the dihedral offers some challenges after you go left near the top. The top 14' or so is very blank, but you have a couple good jams and crimps to help you up.
