The crux is near the start of this great sinker finger crack. Starts with some thin moves up to an overhang. Pulling over this bulge to get into the finger crack was the most challenging part of the climb. Finishes with about 40 feet of fantastic splitter finger crack.


Continues from the top of Old Style. Tops out near the base of Star Wall, finish to the top of the cliff on any of those routes (5.8-5.9)


Chain anchors, doubles in finger sized gear.

McClane's new Canada Rock Book has this at 10a, and I wouldn't disagree. Great pitch!

A great 3 pitch route (recently cleaned) can be done by linking Old Style/Cider Crack/Grub Street. Access is via rappel from bolts.

I agree with the 10a rating!
