  • Description 

    CIA climbs the steep, right-leaning layback/jam crack just right of the arete that separates the left and right faces. I thought this was the best route on the crag. Although short, it felt like real climbing. I TR'd it on self-belay, and laybacked much of it with my left hand on the arete. It felt easier than 10d, Rolofson's rating, maybe 10b. Laybacking should be feasible on the lead, since there's a couple of good spots where you can stop and place gear.


    Protection 

    Small to thin hand-sized cams. Doubles in thin-hand sizes.
