The route follows a wide crack system that runs the entire height of the cliff. A "bear hug" bulge halfway up the first pitch is the crux.
This route has a rather disgusting name for such a classy line.
First pitch is a full rope length.
Second pitch approx. 50'.


Walk off finish. West to gully which is followed down to the north.


Standard rack. several 1"-3" cams helpful.
