BETA PHOTO: Unnamed 5.12- finger crack. Absolutely classic.
This route is absolutely sick. I would most definitely say that this route is worth the trip to South Nuttall all by itself. Made the trip out to this thing about three times to get it done. Took a huge whip going for it, but this route takes good gear the whole way.
The route starts in an obtuse corner with an intimidating, yet not too bad roof pull at its end. Gear is a bit spaced through here, but what you get is good. Pull into the killer finger crack section and work in a few pieces of great pro and then launch up into the killer shallow dihedral. Here a mix of right side in the crack and left side on the face climbing, combined with some killer stemming leads to the top of the corner. Step right on to a small ledge where you can catch your breath from the increasingly challenging climbing you just completed. Finish by more killer stemming and crack climbing up to the two bolts below the large roof.
This route is quite sustained, so rack up...the pump clock is ticking.
This route is located in a left facing corner at the Poison Ivy Wall
