A unique climb that tackles a limestone crack. The rock doesn't lend itself to natural placements - so bolts provide the protection. Some crack skills are helpful, as hand jams keep the crack in its grade. A long pitch for Blacktail that delivers a fine pump.


Third route from the right on the Middle Wall (the first wall you come to on the trail through the talus). It is the obvious bolted crack... can't miss it!


Bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
