Description 

This is a slightly right leaning discontinuous thin crack on the main wall. It looks like it seams out in many places, but every time you pull up and look in, it opens up to accept gear. Mostly dike climbing around the crack with occasional jams.

About 80 feet up, it bumps left a little into a hands/big hands crack through some shrubs. Feel free to help garden these shrubs. 25' of scrambling up lower angle blockyness to the two bolt metolius rap hanger station.

You must have a 70m rope to rap, you barely make it with stretch.


Location 

Main Ledge. This is the crack right of the bolted route Power Lust. Left of the dikey face of Up From the Skies.


Protection 

Standard rack to blue camalot, 70m rope.
