Sticky situation MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This low angle route follows ~500 feet of flaring crack/seam. Climb until the end of your (60m) rope and a perfect anchor crack magically appears every time. Start pitch 3 by either stepping out onto easy slab or staying inside a more difficult, but more secure chimney.


Location 

This is the left of the two right-leaning cracks starting behind the old cabin. The decent goes down the mellow gully to climbers left.


Protection 

Run-out and weirdly-angled nutting. Smaller hand-sized cams for the anchors. All belays are bomber.

This is a fun route, use the slab on the last pitch.
