Description 

This somewhat spooky traditional exercise tackles cracks and flakes just right of "Chopless". Scramble up the gully on the right to the start of the steeper wall. The crux and scary bit comes from the thin flake somehow pasted to the wall above. I don't recommend putting a cam behind it, but there's little else to use. After a few airy and scary moves, there's better gear and a shallow, right-facing corner to a big ledge and the shared belay. It's a lot safer to top-rope this route, but some folks seek out cheap thrills, which they'll certainly find on the lead.


Protection 

Standard gear rack to a pair of anchor bolts with rings.
